I went to the dentist and they said I have to have a root canal. But I can't take in pain killers and we all know regular Tylenol just isn't going to get it.

I would call your OB and see what they say. I have read that it is best to wait and have work done until you are in your second trimester. You will then be able to have a pain killer, but I would call your dr and see what they recommend you to do. Best of Lick to you.

I didn't need pain killers after my root canal. There are also pain killers that would be safe, talk to your dentist & OB

I agree. Call your OB. I need to have a cavity filled and my dentist said not till second tri and not till I get OB's approval. But...a filling is much different then a root canal so you might not have that luxery I guess.

Good luck and Im sorry you have to deal w/ this right now!

Lurking...I had to have a root canal when I was like 6 weeks along with DS. I cried at the dentist's office when they had to take an x-ray to determine if I needed a root canal, and I cried at the office when they had to take an x-ray after the root canal(I was freaked about x-rays while pregnant! They cover you up good though, just make sure you remind them.) I had to get a signature from my OB for the dentist AND the specialist to see me and treat me. I don't remember if I had painkillers, but I have had 1 other root canal when I wasn't pregnant, and I do remember the pain isn't really bad and I didn't have to take many(if any) doses of pain meds.

I had a root canal and didn't take any pain kilers after, and I'm a big baby. I would just make sure they know you are PG. And make sure they give you enough novacaine. I could feel EVRERYTHING!!!
