YOU NEED TO GET AN APPROVAL FROM YOUR DOCTOR FOR THE DENTIST TO WRITE YOU A PRESCRIPTION FOR ANTIBIOTICS. YOU NEED TO HAVE IT UNDER CONTROL BECAUSE THEY DO NOT LIKE TO PULL TEETH WHILE YOU ARE PREGNANT. IF IT IS A NO WAY AROUND IT SITUATION THEY WILL. BUT THEY DO NOT LIKE TO GIVE YOU MEDICATION. I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I HAD A TOOTH PULLED FROM AN ABCESS AT 7 MONTHS PREGNANT AND WASN'T GIVEN ANY PAIN RELIEF WHATSOEVER. AND NOT TO MENTION HAD MY DAUGHTER TWO WEEKS LATER.
