    Default Wisdom teeth removal

    Has anyone has their wisdom teeth out early in their pregnancy?

    I'm due to get mine out in two weeks, I'm flying home to get it done (because it's was cheaper). My flights are booked as is the dentist.

    It's my two bottom ones, it should be straight forward and I'm only getting them out in the chair. So it's just a local.

    I don't want to tell my family I'm pregnant while I'm home as I'll only be 6 weeks, and I can't discuss this with my dentist because my home town in tiny and everyone knows everyone.

    Can I get them out without saying anything?

    What would you do? If I cancel it everyone will ask why as that is what I am specifically going home for

    I'd just say something to your dentist, I'm sure they can't disclose personal information.

    But I think you'll be ok unless you need xrays I'm thinking it's likely ok...

    Hope I can still get them out. I may need X-rays but I guess he can decide if it's safe at the time. When I've had them previously it's just a small handheld one on my face. He normally puts a jacket thing over my body

    Default Wisdom teeth removal

    You should discuss it with your dentist as they may have to do a few things differently. I just had 3 fillings done and they had to use different local anaesthetic due to my pregnancy. My dentist was not happy with me that I put off a root canal til after baby was born last time, as it would of been healthier for the baby to get the work done and not be in pain. Also, it was really difficult to get babysitters for such a young baby
