It is actually safer for you and your baby to have the root canal procedure done as soon as possible, instead of finishing the pregnancy with an active infection in your mouth. Not to mention the pain you'll be going through!. Do yourself and your baby a favor and get the root canal treatment as soon as you can.

Yes, there is still hope! You can request a set of custom trays be made for your teeth, similar to the bleaching trays that people use to whiten their teeth. Instead of tooth whitening gel, you can ask your dentist about desensitizing gel. One company that makes this gel is called Opalescence. Putting this gel in the tray and then wearing them for an amount of time determined by the gel manufacturer will likely help with your tooth sensitivity more than the toothpaste you have been using.

Good luck!
