Brief Answer: Yes. She can have the procedure. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The dental procedure or removal is a minor surgical procedure and needs only a local anaesthesia. She can undergo the procedure in her 7th month of pregnancy if there are no other complications. You can disclose about her pregnancy to her treating dentist so that she can be given category B antibiotics and other medicines that are safe for use during pregnancy. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
