yes, i got a tooth pulled and cavity filled at 37 weeks.

If your dentist suggest it then yes

Filled or tooth pulled?

Yes but I was told the 2nd trimester is the safest

I had 2 teeth pulled at like 30 weeks pregnant :woman_shrugging: they said that was perfectly safe

Yes, after second trimester is best and letter from your OB. You can’t have N2O though.

Dentists and midwives actually recommend it

Yes in fact your dental problems can affect the baby so it’s a good idea to take care of it.

I had a tooth pulled while pregnant,they just had to have permission from my ob to give the numbing meds.

You can yes. I had a tooth removed while pregnant and I wouldn’t recommend it. It was awful!

Yes if it gets infected and spreads to your bloodstream it could hurt baby. Not trying to scare you. It’s been a while for me but I think they said you could, they just have to watch what pain meds to give you and monitor for infection.

Yes! I had a tooth removed around 18 weeks. No complications. :slightly_smiling_face:

I got a filling while pregnant. You just have to have your doctor fill out a paper that clears you for it…(At least In Washington State You Do)

Yes. I had a dental abscess at 8 months pregnant. Your dentist should consult your OB for any meds

I had a wisdom tooth taken out at 7 months. I did fine afterwards and so did baby

Yes definitely take care of it! Dentist might want a note from your ob saying it’s safe. But definitely get that done asap!

I just had 2 molars removed a couple weeks ago at 27 weeks pregnant.
