Pregnant with a few cavities

Friday, Jan. 1st 2010 6:52 PM

Newly pregnant with a few cavities

I have three cavities.  The problem is that I am also about two months pregnant.  Should I wait until I have the baby to do the filling I need?  Or is it okay to get the three filling I need while I am still pregnant?  I do not know and would like some advise.

    I would get the filing done now. You do not want to have them get worse over the next seven months. It is not good for you to be in pain because of a tooth ache while you are pregnant either.

    Just tell your dentist a head of time that you are pregnant so that they they the extra care needed.

    If you are worried about going to the dentist while you are two months pregnant then call a head of time and talk to your dentist. Tell him/her that you are expecting, and would like to know if it is an issue or not.

    I would not want to take the change of a filling turning into root canal because I waited on having the work done. The dentist can go over the process with you and then you can still talk to your OBGYN to confirm that all would be okay for you to have the filling done.

    You may want to way until you are three months along, before having dental work done. However, talk to your OBGYN see what she advises you to do.

    That is just one of the great benefits of nursing compared to bottle feeding. It is very rear if a baby get dental carries from breastfeeding. Unless you just let your baby use you as a pacifier then you should be find.

    Continue to brush her teeth at least two times a day and wipe her mouth after nursing.
