I don't see how it would harm your baby... You CAN get cavaties filled when pregnant, and that's a way more powerful numbing agent than orajel! I got cavaties filled when pregnant (had the xrays done before I was preg) and I was ok. You can always call up your doctor or a consulting nurse to be sure though.

It's a class C drug.



www.safefetus.com and goto drug search. Anytime you have a question about a medicine you can find some quickie info on wether it's safe or not.

Thanks for that web-site JanuaryRose! I just try to avoid most meds during (well, actually anytime) pregnancy, so it's good to know if I absolutley must take something where I can go to look it up! I have it saved in my favorites now!
