Hi Madam,
the drugs prescribed to you are absolutely safe. you can use them without any hesitation during pregnancy, but use them as minimum as required. Keep a good oral hygeine. and if you wish to get them extracted, 2nd TRIMESTER (4-6 months), are considered best time for such elective treatment. First three months are very crucial for growth and development of foetus, so extraction sort of treatment which puts up lot of stress on to the mother, and sometime even may necessiate Xray examinations of the tooth are not carried out unless and untill absolutely necessary or in emergencies of severe pain and swelling.

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Depending on the position as well as space available for tooth eruption,wisdom tooth has to be either extracted or flap overlying tooth has to be removed to enhance tooth eruption.

Gargle frequently with lukewarm saline.

Continue with antibiotics.

If tooth has to be extracted take opinion from your GP as welll as dentist regarding this.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for aksing the query,

You should be very careful while using the drugs in pregnancy as some drugs can cross the placental barrier and reach the feotus, so always consult your OBGYN before taking the drugs.
The above mentioned drugs mentioned can be safely taken.
Avoid taking of x-rays during pregnancy.
At home take lukewarm saline and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.
You can plan for the removal of the tooth after the delivary of the child.
Till then maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out,

Regards...
