@vintage2010:  I didn’t, but my dental hygenist was telling me that she did. They had to only do local anesthetic, like novacaine and the like, and obviously don’t put you under, so she said it wasn’t great, but hers was an emergency situation. 

I would say it’s doubtful they will be that big of a problem that it couldn’t wait a few months, but on the off chance that it is, they can do it. Especially if it is coming through– the put me in twilight sleep since mine were impacted.

Mine started to come in when I was having my oldest and stopped. They restarted again a few years later. I would go to the dentist and just have them look at it to see what is going on.

When I was pregnant my teeth bothered me a lot! I guess it’s normal, they took my wisdom Teeth out two months after giving birth

Your wisdom teeth should come in at around 19-21 years of age.  Some grow out earlier, some later (especially if they’re impacted). Are you around this age range?  

I’ve never heard of pregnancy accelerating them to push out.  If they start to hurt you though, I wouldn’t worry about having an X-ray taken of the area (I usually have my patients wear 2 lead aprons for double protection even though the radiation dosage is very minimal).  I’ve also taken out teeth during someone’s pregnancy (in all 3 trimesters) with no problem, just as long as they have an MD clearance from their OB-GYN.  They just usually request that I use a local anesthetic without epinephrine.  

Best of luck to you!

@vintage2010:  Yes. This is a thing. In fact, my dentist (who is also a family friend) pulled mine before they came in. I didn’t understand why they needed to come out but he said that preganancy down the road can make them come in if they had not. Also, my mom had had 2 out when she was in college and then with her 3rd child had serious pain from the 2 still in. I remember she could only really use baby oragel to numb the gums. She also had them removed shortly after my brother was born when she could have the meds. So, you are not crazy and may need to get some baby oragel.

I didn’t get any new teeth during pregnancy, but mine got a bit loose. Like I could move them a tiny bit and if I ran down stairs I would feel them move a little bit. It has to do with the relaxin that relaxes all ligaments and your teeth are held in place with ligaments, however weird that sounds..
