I'm going to ask my midwife this too, but I know different people have different opinions & I like to know all of the perspectives.
I knew before I got pregnant I had a small cavity, which I planned on getting fixed, however I got pregnant (suprise!) and then decided to wait untill after the baby was born with the theory of avoiding the novicane. I havent taken even a single tylenol with this pregnancy because I know its best to avoid medications when possible.
It really wasn't very painful untill just recently, but Its making me pretty miserable at the moment.
How bad is the novicane (in the way it will be used to fill a cavity)? I'm 32 weeks right now, so if I had to wait untill after delivery Its not the end of the world, but I'm in quite a bit of pain to sit here needlessly if the procedure is harmless.
Thanks for any thoughts you might have.
edited to add: just got the call back from my midwife. She said no xrays, no general, no gas, no silver fillings, no floride, but that novicane and a white filling would be fine.
