After struggling for 3 years with Infertility, I am currently pregnant at 19 weeks.
I started having some toothache and I went to the Dentist last week. He suggested me to get the wisdom tooth extracted as I had a huge cavity.Dentist suggested tooth extraction as my wisdom teeth can lead to infections if left untreated. Dentist also spoke to my OB who agreed to let me have the procedure as I am in my second trimester.
However when I went to my dentist last thursday, he gave me an anesthetic which caused my heart beat to go high for 5 mins. I was completely alright after 5 mins. When I did my research yesterday I found that out my dentist gave me lidocaine with epinephrine. I am just so concerned that it might affect my baby. I am also going to speak with my OB tomorrow. Are there anyone who has experienced having this medication during pregnancy?
Please suggest as I am very worried.
