I'm going to the dentist @ 2, but wondering if anyone has experience in the meantime (also trying to distract self from pain).
My bottom two wisdom teeth need to be taken out, but they will not do them in the chair. Before I got pregnant, they said it had to be done by an Oral Surgeon under GA.
We decided to take a couple months off TTC to get it sorted out, but of course I got my BFP that month! Unfortunate timing for tooth but over the moon of course.
Since becoming pregnant, I've had two other teeth chip quite badly (within a week of each other & it was really early on). These don't hurt.
I figured I would just get everything fixed ASAP after bubs because they won't do my wisdom without GA- can't do GA when pregnant so a bit tricky.
My wisdom teeth have been increasingly painful and as of last night unbearable. I have been alternating Panadol, panadeine, fish oil (natural anti inflammatory) and at night Tylenol PM (over the counter from the states it's basically same as Panadol with Benedryl) for the last week or so. I know long term use is not good so I am going to a different dentist today in hopes they might be brave enough to do my teeth in the chair (doubt it),
I have used warm salt water rinses and every pregnancy safe trick in the book!
I know they can't do GA when preggo but I also know infection during pregnancy is bad. I fig with this much pain it has to be infected. I know what I'm taking is safe but not in large amounts or for extended periods. Also a wee bit worried about the two chipped teeth even though they don't hurt. My nana lost all her teeth over three pregnancies!
Anyone else had a similar wisdom tooth situation where they said GA was ideal but managed to get them to go chair?
Any insight? Gahhh! Distract me!
