  • I had mine removed after my 3rd child was born. I hate the dentist as well and went to them and said, "I really do not like coming here, if I need them removed please put me to sleep" They were very nice about this and I did not have a hard time when they did get removed.

    I would check with them and see what they can do for you know. I would also talk to you DR and see if there is anything they can give you for the pain.

    Good Luck

  • I had all 4 of mine taken out when I was 6 weeks pregnant- I didn't think it was that bad at all.. Everyone made it seem like it was the end of the world but I didn't think it hurt that much at all.. Good luck!! You will be fine! Dentist aren't as terrible as people make them!! I am a dental assistant and I see people everyday that are terrified and I can't figure out why.. It isn't any different then going to a reg dr.. he just specializes in teeth instead of the human body.. Good luck!! You will do fine!! :)
