  • I don't think so.I would take a test first to find out for sure. But I had my wisdom teeth pulled when I was 4-5 months pregnant with my older two.If you are, call your Dr before you have anything else done.

  • I got dental work done while pregnant. I actually had to. I got an infection in two of my teeth. Actually, having an infection in your teeth can be very bad. So it is good you got you teeth fixed so it lessen the chance of any problems if you are pregnant.

  • Usually no, I got some work done also. its the x-rays you need to watch for. If your not sure, don't get x-rays until you take a test.

  • Call your OBGYN if you are concerned. My OBGYN gave my dentist a sheet saying what I could and could not have done. Did you mention to the dentist that you might be pg? I had oral surgery when I was about 19 weeks along and they just had to give me a different type of anaesthetic.
