I am 10 weeks pregnant, and I was going to get my wisdom teeth removed until I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to try to wait until the baby is born to get them out. However I cant open my mouth all the way, and I cant chew or talk without being in a lot of pain.
The oral surgeon will remove my teeth, they just cant use general anestisia (sp?). Has anyone had this done?

Well, my teeth weren't impacted, but they were making my jaw hurt pretty badly, & one of them was angled straight toward the front of my mouth. I got the Novocaine, & got all 4 taken out at once. It wasn't bad at all, to tell you the truth. A lot of the experience depends on how your nerves, jaw, & teeth are set up, & the surgeon you have. The worst part the day of surgery was that I slurred & drooled some, & by the next day I was eating soft breadsticks. I didn't swell up badly, & with the Percoset the doctor gave me, at the worst I was uncomfortable. I followed the home instructions very carefully, & I think it made a big difference. I LOVED rinsing with warm salt water- it helped with the swelling, & my doctor says it helps prevent dry sockets. I hope it isn't bad for you!
