FAQ:  Pregnancy and Nursing Newborns

I am due to get extractions done tomorrow. However, I am also now 7 weeks pregnant (my clinic has a very long waiting list). Is there any form of pain relief or sedation that I will be able to use, or will I have to wait until a later time?

If I can still have the extractions done while I'm pregnant, what week(s) is/are safe? ...Visitor from MN

There is no definition for safe, but you need to talk to your gynecologist and get clearance for any type of surgery.

Your dentist will know not to use any epinephrine type anesthetic and you should only do what is absolutely necessary. If you can wait until after delivery, do so, unless the teeth are infected and possibly causing you and your baby harm.
