Baby Dental – Dental Work and Pregnancy

Friday, Jan. 15th 2021 1:08 PM

I am having a really hard time with my tooth that needs to have a root canal or something done to it to stop this god awful pain I am having. I am three months pregnant and my dentist is scared to do anything to help me. I got him to give me some antibiotics for abscess that is starting by that tooth. He is so very paranoid about doing any dental work on me because I am pregnant regardless of the pain that I am in.

So he stated he would not do anything else for me and referred me to an Endodontics. I think he is just shoving me off onto another dentist. I do not want to do anything that can cause harm to my unborn baby but staying in this much pain for another six months is out of the question. I can not see how that can be any good for my baby either.

Reply: Well it is not like you can not have dental work because you are pregnant. The dentist however needs to know how to treat a pregnant women.

I think you are being to hard on your general dentist. If their office is not set up to do work on a pregnant women, or if your root canal goes beyond what he feels he can do then he is doing the correct thing by referring you off to a specialist. Would you rather he treat you when he feels it goes beyond what he should be doing?

Go to a Endodontics dentist. Let them know how many months you are pregnant the dentist office may wish to speak to your OBGYN to confirm treatment.
