Is it safe to have a root canal therapy while being pregnant?
Hey! I am Alice. I am 6 months pregnant. One of my molar teeth broke two weeks back. I had only mild pain at that time. Yesterday while I was having a candy bar, I started experiencing pain in my molar teeth. My husband took me to a dental clinic in Mississauga. The dentist, after examination, said that half of my molar teeth are broken and it has got cavities too. He suggested undergoing a root canal therapy. I am worried whether the root canal treatment would harm my baby. I discussed this with my husband and he told me to undergo the therapy. But I am confused. Is there anybody over here who has undergone a root canal therapy while being pregnant? How was your experience? Is it safe to have a root canal therapy while being pregnant? Does it have any side effects and complications? Please help me out!
