  • Hi Adele I have had a tooth out a few years ago and it was relativley (sp) painless and easy. Bascially they numb the area with an injection (to me this was the worse bit) then pull it out. They its just a case of waiting for it to heal. They will give you antibiotics incase it become infected too, but mine didn't, just make sure you bruch well and rinse. Think its time you got back on to the denist and made another appointment! Hope it goes well. Tammi xxx

  • it is possible you must tell them your pregnant though so they can use the correct anesthetic. they numb the area with a needle at the back of your mouth on the side the tooth is on ( they inject a few times around the area but it doesnt hurt at all) they will give it 10/20 mins to take effect then they will pull it using a pair of surgical plyers. if its abit stubborn they will wiggle the tooth around abit. you will feel a strong puling sensation but no pain. it will bleed for a couple of days after and the dentist will give you instructions about how to take care of it, what you can take for the pain. what you can drink afterwards etc. ive lost 3 teeth with 3 pregnancies. my latest i had out in december after i bit it awkwardly and it split.
