Pregnancy & Dentistry: What You Should Know

Expecting mothers know that treating any health issues is a priority during this special time, as any problems could affect the baby. But what about getting dental treatments?

Key takeaways:

  • It’s safe to receive care for gum disease, and it’s important to do so to avoid infection and possible low birth weight problems. 
  • Fillings are also safe during pregnancy. 
  • Bacteria in cavities can be transmitted to your baby which could increase the baby’s risk of cavities during their childhood – so it’s important to get cavities treated before or during pregnancy.
  • Dental cleanings are also safe during pregnancy, and keep teeth free of plaque and bacteria.

If you have any specific concerns, make sure to discuss them with your dentist.
