  • You need to be careful if you try to have dental work done while pregnant. The problem is if bacteria enter your bloodstream during the procedure it can then cross the placenta to your unborn baby and cause problems. MOST dentists won't do work on a pregnant woman because of the risks.

  • You can go, just don't get any X-rays.

  • my doctor told me it was okay as long as your not going under or get laughing gas... ask your doctor just to be sure. but im almost positive they will tell you its okay.

  • I had cleanings and alot of filling when I was pregnant, both my Dr and dentist knew I was and they said it was fine.
