Ask an expert

18 Sep 2006

Hi there,

I just wanted a second opinion. I have suffered from tooth ache during my pregnancy, I did tell the Dentist and he said that the anaesthetic would not harm the baby, only put it to sleep. I have had three so far and am five months pregnant. What is your take on this?

Another question; what could I take for diarrhoea?

Thanks for your time.

Local anaesthetic certainly will not harm the baby.
The best thing for diarrhoea is to stick to fluids and dry toast for a day or two.

Best wishes
