Dental care, Extensive dental work needed four months pregnant

Sunday, Jul. 11th 2010 11:50 AM

I am four month pregnant and I need extensive dental work.  I need to have three filling, a root canal with crown, and two teeth pulled then a bridge.   I have really good dental insurance that is helping me out with more then half my dental cost.

The thing that I am worry  about is that it may be too much to continue to have done while I am pregnant.  The dentist I am seeing say all the work can be done and that I would be better off having the dental work now then putting it off.

As anyone had this much dental work when they were pregnant?  Should I wait until after having my baby.  I am just not 100% sure of what to do.  Would love some advice.

    I had dental work when I was pregnant. Not as much as what you need but I to had to have a root canal and a crown done when I was six months pregnant.

    Your dentist is right you should get your teeth fixed sooner then latter. Having bad teeth is never good but to wait five to six months to address your current teeth issues is way to long.

    Believe me you do not want to have a toothache when you are pregnant. If you are worried about the dental work talk to your OBGYN for advise too.
