    Mouth infections are no joke. I haven't dealt with that, but I did have two teeth pulled when I was pregnant with my son without issue.

    Yes!  I went for a checkup like 6 months ago and they told me I would need a root canal and crown on one of my teeth but said I could wait til post baby.  Well, I'm supposed to be induced this week and wouldn't you know it the damn filling fell out on Friday!  I was able to get an emergency appointment and they put in a temp filling but to keep the tooth from fracturing but they told me to be extra careful on that side and that I would need the root canal right after baby got here.  AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!!!!!  Gonna have to get some chicklets and crazy glue :)
