as far as i know if an extraction cannot be postponed n has to be done its safest in 2nd trimester. ur gynec n dentist will be making sure all the medicines u take will be safe to consume in pregnancy. i think Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa or BC expert can give more tips.
prescription given Novamax and dolo 650 tablet can I take whenever i feel pain.
all emergency dental treatments can only be done in 2 trimester. .. inform dentist about pregnancy. ..
I went to another dentist for second opinion, he said no we should not remove the teeth during pregnancy and given some tablets. am totally confused.😐😐

Tooth extraction during pregnancy needs special consideration to avoid any harm to the unborn baby. So usually dentists avoid tooth extraction while pregnant. However, if the tooth is highly infected, non-restorable, and the infection is spreading then the dentist recommends tooth extraction.
Depending on the trimesters of pregnancy, the oral surgeon plans tooth extraction.. During the first trimester, organogenesis of the fetus occurs. As a result, the fetus is highly vulnerable to malformation of organs if the expecting mother experiences strain and stress while tooth extraction. So surgeons mostly postpone tooth extraction during the first trimester.. During the second trimester, fetal growth takes place. So the dentist considers the phase as a safe period to carry out tooth extraction and other necessary dental procedures.. During the third trimester, the expecting mother may find it difficult to sit in the dental chair in one position for hours. Also, bleeding during tooth extraction may increase, and it may prove harmful. So doctor postpones the operation or carries it out in the first month of the last trimester..
