Dental Health & Pregnancy



Pregnancy is a miraculous and occasionally confusing time.? Every woman who has ever been pregnant, or who currently is pregnant, knows that you spend a good deal of your pregnancy making sure that everything you do is safe for the baby you are growing.? This constant preoccupation on what is, and what is not safe for an unborn child means that many expectant mothers tend to shy away from important dental cleanings while pregnant due to the misconception that all dental work could potentially be dangerous during pregnancy.? In fact, the exact opposite is true!

Extensive dental work should be delayed until after giving birth if possible, but routine work and cleanings are generally thought to be safe during pregnancy during a large portion of the pregnancy.? In fact,?regular dental cleanings are highly recommended for expectant moms, with only a few basic stipulations.

During pregnancy, a woman often goes through several stages of “hormone surges” that correspond with the development of their baby.? These hormones associated with pregnancy, can in turn cause a woman’s gums to swell and can trap food between gum and the teeth–raising the risk for both cavities and gum infection.? Receiving quality periodontal (or gum) care during pregnancy can help in reducing the risk of infection, which is vital not only to overall dental health, but the health of the unborn baby as well.? Periodontal infections, or diseases, have been recently linked to a significant portion of preterm births.

While getting regular cleanings and check ups are important, there are a few guidelines which can help make sure that all dental work received during pregnancy is safe for a developing baby.? Most prenatal care providers agree that while in the first trimester, as well as the second half of the last trimester, it is advisable to limit dental work–as they are very crucial times in embryonic and fetal development.? However, the second, and first half of the third trimesters are fine for cleanings, and non-extensive dental work.

During pregnancy, it is a good idea when receiving basic dental work, to limit the amount of anesthesia during necessary procedures.? However, as Lidocaine (the most commonly used anesthetic used during dental work) is considered a Category B drug (which means there are no current animal studies to indicate danger to a fetus, thereby? making the drug considered generally safe to use in limited amounts during pregnancy), receiving enough to make dental work more comfortable for the mother does not pose a significant threat during pregnancy.

Another consideration that should take place when receiving dental care during pregnancy is of course, x-rays.? While a single exposure is deemed safe, it is important to weigh the options on how necessary x-rays are during pregnancy.? If they are not necessary, they are often left until after giving birth, or very special precautions are taken to protect both mother and child.

Getting the best of dental care while pregnant, should always be a priority for any expectant mother!? That is why our?dentists in cary nc?want to make sure your teeth stay healthy with worry free, quality dental care.??Contact us?today to make your appointment!
