Telling The Dentist As Soon As Possible

As soon as you believe you’re pregnant, tell your dentist, because it may not be safe to have X-rays during pregnancy. You should also let your dentist know if you are trying to get pregnant; knowing this can help in planning x-rays or other treatments. Be sure to tell your dentist what medicines you’re taking and if your physician has given you any specific medical advice, as it may affect the treatment he or she recommends.

When possible, visit your dentist before pregnancy so you can take are of any pre-existing dental problems before you conceive.

Postponing Dental Care During Your First Trimester

The first trimester of your pregnancy (the first 13 weeks) is the time in which most of the baby's major organs develop. If you go to the dentist during your first trimester, tell your dentist that you're pregnant and have only a checkup and routine cleaning. If possible, postpone any major dental work until after the first trimester. However, if you have a dental emergency, don't wait! Infections in the mouth can be harmful to you and your baby. See your dentist immediately, and make sure that all dental professionals who examine you are aware you're pregnant.

Visiting the Dentist During Pregnancy

If you have postponed seeing your dentist during your first or second trimester, the third trimester is the time to have a dental checkup to ensure that your mouth is healthy. By visiting your dentist at this time, he or she will be able to advise you on what you can do to prevent oral heath problems after your baby is born.
