Re: Novacaine during pg...Okay?

i had a ton of dental work done during my second pregnancy, all during the second trimester. my dentist said that novacaine was not safe for pregnant women, and gave me a different drug, though i can't remember the name. it was just as effective at killing the pain, but it will only last one hour, if even that. he was in the middle of one filling when it wore off, and i sat and sobbed in the chair while he finished it. SUCK-OLA.

maybe your dentist is cool with the novacaine b/c it's only one tooth? i had a root canal, three crowns, and a dozen fillings.

one thing, make absolutely sure that they cover your neck with the neck guard on the heavy apron if they need to do an x-ray!
