Dental Health During Pregnancy
The belief that dental and gum-related treatments cannot be performed during pregnancy is not true. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can trigger gingivitis and these problems in your teeth can have very serious consequences that can lead to premature birth.
Oral care and dental treatment during pregnancy should be preferred, especially between 16-28 weeks, so that the pain does not affect the baby. Dental treatment, root canal treatment, and even tooth extraction under anesthesia can be performed during pregnancy.
Local anesthetics (drugs) used during treatment do not harm the baby. If antibiotic treatment is required, your dentist can consult with the obstetrician and prescribe antibiotics that will not harm the baby.
