I had to have an emergency root canal when I was pregnant with my son too. Make sure and discuss it with your dentist office before you go because mine required a letter of released from my OBGYN.
It was not anywhere near as painful as I expected it to be and my son was completely unharmed.
if you have infection then you are safe to do it. the infection is worse than doing the root canal while pregnant. i am a dental assistant. we try not to do work on patients who are in their first trimester unless a root canal is needed. tooth pain is not fun at all!
Yes I did mention it! They said it is fine and that the cons of having an infection are way higher than having a root canal. I can’t help but keep worrying though
Mention to your doctor you're pregnant. They will need to do X-rays and you're not allowed nitrous/laughing gas
It is local lidocaine, so I believe it it okay. Just talk with tour doctor
I had a root canal (not while pregnant), but it truly wasn't a big deal. I can't think of any reason it would hurt your baby. Express your concerns to your dentist. I'm sure they can tell you each step of a root canal and if anything needs to be done differently because you're pregnant.
