  • not at all...dental care is so important during pregnancy...just tell the dentist you are pregnant....it's gonna do more harm if you don't get work done because you're constantly swallowing the bacteria, tarter, and plaque from the bad teeth which can harm your baby...get the work done...you won't hurt the baby at all

  • Get the work done. Tell them when you make the appointment that you're pregnant, and also tell the dentist when you're there - they won't do anything unsafe, like x-ray your mouth. But it's much better to get the work down now than to let it get worse - letting it stew & get worse would be more harmful to the baby than doing it now.
