Don't know much - but when they took out my wisdom teeth, they totally knocked me out. I was only out for about 20 minutes total - but I was out. So, I don't know if that helps or not! Good luck and congrats on your pregnancy!

There's a thread in the dental archives dedicated to just this topic, with tons of info!

Check it out!



Sliiiiiight correction, my uber-cool cyber assistant, lidocaine is *local*, meaning it acts locally, not all over. Topical is like Solarcaine or that stuff you spray on your sore throat. And it actually does go through your body, it gets injected, and so gets out via the liver. Such a teeny tiny amount, mostly water, very safe.

Thanks Smilemomma! They actually aren't bothering me at all right now, but they were just a couple months ago AND I've been getting headaches pretty frequently, so I really do think that I should get them out. I will wait until the 2nd trimester though - do you think that will be fairly safe then? And will it be okay to take Arnica then, too?

Thanks for the congratulations - it's my 4th! (Kind of hard to believe!!)

I had my partially erupted wisdom teeth out, one at a time (only had two). The doctor did it under novocaine, and I was gone in twenty minutes, my choice. I never did take any tylenol because it never did hurt. They had been causing joint presure and pain. $70 each.
My husband had the usual, non-erupted wisdom teeth, impacted. He was out during the extraction, and down for the count for a week. He had stitches and the whole nine yards. Total cost for all 4: $2700.

If your experience is likely to be the former, I would say go for it. If it is at all like the latter, put it off. (I do think waiting to the 2nd trimester sounds good, though, anyway).

Good point. I should call the dentist up and find out from them what sort of experience it's likely to be... simple/quick or more difficult. Thanks for that perspective!

By the way, I only have 2 wisdom teeth as well - my bottom two. They ARE partially erupted, but still impacted.
