Oral sedation during pregnancy

I'm in my second trimester. I'm having severe tooth pain for the last 2 months. First, I didn't think about consulting any dentist because the medicines that they providing will affect my baby's health. But last week the pain was intolerable and I was not able to stay consciously even for a minute. So I consulted a dental doctor near my locality.He suggested a root canal therapy ( ) for me. But I'm really scared about the dental treatments and he suggested an oral sedation. But I'm really tensed because should I have an oral sedation during the time of pregnancy. Has anyone done oral sedation during the time of pregnancy? Kindly advice. I'm really scared.

Hi there

Please be led by the healthcare professionals in charge of your care. A dentist is a highly trained person, and I’m sure they would not suggest this if they didn’t think it was safe. You could always check with your midwife as well.

I hope this helps

Best wishes
