Title: Pregnancy and dental work
Post by: Judy765 on March 27, 2017, 06:01:19 AM
I have a tooth which has a cavity in it and I don’t know exactly if its infected but the tooth aches sometimes. It seems like my tooth would require an emergency extraction( ). But I’m almost 15 weeks pregnant and I’m worried how taking dental treatment will affect my baby. It’s giving me trouble on and off for a few days now. I am also worried if it’s infected, is it harming my baby. I can’t live with this pain, but the idea of having the dental work done while pregnant freaks me out too. I was just wondering if anyone has gone to the dentist while pregnant? I have read articles telling against it and some say it's fine. I am confused. Has anyone gone through such a complication while pregnant? Please share.
