So, I need some dental work done. The last pregnancy, I did some, and it was pretty tough. Apparently my body metabolizes numbing stuff really fast, but I couldn't have more because of the baby. Whew. It was a pretty deep cavity, and while my dentist was great and very gentle, hurt A LOT while he did it.
Is that common? Should I be concerned about a more surface cavity? Or will it probably not be that big of a deal, even if I metabolize the stuff? Typically, they numb me, and within 15 minutes or so, I get a huge involuntary adreneline rush. I shake uncontrollably all over. And barely get numb. They give me more, and the same thing happens, but after about 45+ minutes of waiting, I'll still be only 1/2 numb. And then they have to do it again. And it doesn't last very long either, though the really tingly waking up part does.
Is that okay for the baby? And is it just going to hurt like crazy again?
