Dental work in pregnancy

I have to get a cavity filled today and I haven’t been to my first prenatal visit with my doctor. I am about 7 weeks pregnant. Can I get a shot of novacaine or is it harmful to my baby?

Natalie

Dear Natalie,

You can have dental work including novacaine during pregnancy. Be sure to tell your dentist about the pregnancy so that they won't use any medications that could cause a problem.

Sincerely,
Amy
