I do not think that they can put you to sleep while you are pregnant. I actually had the same issue while I was pregnant with my last baby, and the dentist called my obgyn to ask what could be done. I wanted them out fast because I was in so much pain from them. The obgyn said that I could only have local anesthesia and that was it. The strongest pain medication for after the surgery (if I remember correctly) that I could have was tylenol afterward. I was in my second trimester at the time, so I decided to wait until I had the baby to have them out. I three wisdom teeth, and one other tooth removed all at the same time with only local anesthesia. I was given percocet for the pain. If I could do things all over again, I would NOT have had the local anesthesia and would either have wanted to be put to sleep for it, or given gas. I am not even going to go into detail but it was not a good experience.
