  • i just had a perioscale cleaning done and i had the same worries..i called the pharmacy and asked the dentist to be double sure. They said it was fine because it was just a one time thing...and its not like you are going to be going through the entire pregnancy on the drugs

  • If it's only cavities it should be fine, usually they only use novocaine.  I would just ask your dentist though because they should know.

  • Call & check w/ your dentist just to make sure the chemicals he'll be using to fill your cavities won't cause any problems, you may also have to have x rays.
