So I had a small piece of filling (I presume beacause it was metal) come out of my tooth. I know that the filling is loose because when I floss, it gets stuck underneath and sometimes pulls up the filling. I called my dentist today, because I am also due for a cleaning and mentioned that I lost a piece of filling and because I am in early pregnancy (6 weeks), they told me that I can't come in even for just a cleaning, until I get a note clearing me to come in from my OB/GYN. I see my OB in 2 weeks. Is this something that can wait or should I be going in right away? I am not in pain at all. I am also worried because the last time I got a filling done in this tooth (about two years ago), I had pain for a month until the tooth finally settled down.
