Pregnancy and dentistry if full of tails of which there are too many to list. One fact that can be dispelled is that babies do not leach calcium from their mother’s teeth! So you won’t lose a tooth for every pregnancy..
Mums-to-be can definitely still have dental treatments while pregnant and in fact we highly recommend you keep up your dental cleans and examinations. Routine x-rays can be delayed until after the baby is born but should you require an x-ray that cannot be delayed, remember your radiation exposure is managed with a lead gown placed over your abdomen and the exposure is less than what you would receive flying from State to State. Due to your midly suppressed immunity, your body’s defences against the bacteria in plaque may be reduced so it is important to brush and floss more while you are pregnant or your gums may start bleeding.
