I have a tooth that had a cavity in it pre-pregnancy that I didn't have taken care of. Yes, baaaaaaad me.
I'm a dental chicken, beyond chicken - biggest baby you could imagine.
Anyway, sometime in the summer it broke. It didn't hurt aside from a twinge here and there that a dab of orajel would take care of. Well, last night it went bad. Very bad. I had to sleep with ice on it. I'm rinsing with peroxide and mouth wash.
I had planned on taking care of it once baby arrives (EDD Dec. 15), but now I'm not so sure holding of is an option. Or at least, I can't just ignore it. I'm pretty darn sure there is an infection there.
I just want the darn thing pulled, but I'm such a chicken that I need to be knocked out for it. Which, won't work while pregnant. I had an extraction once with just novacaine, it wasn't pretty for anyone.
Anyone had dental emergencies while pregnant? What do you think the chances that they would give me antibiotics to clear the infection and let me put off yanking the tooth until kiddo gets here? I can't live with the pain, but the idea of having the work done while pregnant freaks me out too.
Sorry for rambling. It hurts!
