Silver Filling Replacement During Pregnancy?

Has anyone had any fillings replaced during pregnancy? My OB and dentist give me the go ahead, but I am so nervous about the process of drilling out silver fillings. I've read that it can lead to high levels of mercury absorption. I will be getting the white ones put in to replace them, so I am not really worried about that part.

Personally I wouldn't do it unless it was at risk of getting an infection. Or maybe get another doctor's second opinion.

If your OB and dentist have iven you the go ahead then you should be fine.

How far along are you in your pregnancy? Is it imperative that you get it done now? If you really are that concerned then put it off till after you have Bubs.
