Hi Vicky,

It depends upon what they need to do to remove it.  In some cases they have to sedate you and many dentists would be reluctant to do that if you're pregnant.

Is it a dentist or an oral surgeon that you're seeing?  An oral surgeon may be able to do the surgery in a "day-care" setting as opposed to a dentist office.  They should be able to have an anesthesiologist present, if necessary.

Pain management after the fact may also be an issue.

You can always get a second opinion.  Again, this may not be something that can/should be done in a dentist office.
