I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and one of my teeth is really bugging me with pain. I was told about 8 months ago that it needed to be crowned but that it probably didnt' need a root canal... yet. Well that was 8 months ago and now I'm pretty sure I'm at the root canal stage because it hurts so badly upon contact with food (warm, cold, neutral, doesn't matter).
So my question is, can I safely get a root canal while I'm pregnant? What precautions do I need to take? If I wait until the baby is born I fear I will delay getting the procedure for months and that will only make things unbearable in my mouth.
