Dental fillings during pregnancy

I had a filling at the start of the year, I'm now 22 weeks pregnant and the filling just fell out, it actually hurts a little. Is it safe to have it re filled while pregnant? May sound like a dumb question but I have no idea

I dont think they can use novacain on you..but it is something you should call your dentist and ask them..maybe they can find something they can use so you can get the filling redone.

I actually didn't get my first cavity until I got pregnant at 22.  I got it filled and they had to use another kind of numbing medicene other than novacain (can't remember what it was called)

My dentist did. I had to have an approval letter from my Ob. I had 2 teeth pulled my last pregnancy and will probably have one pulled this time too.
