  • Yes it is, and I would go see a dentist. They can do dental work while you are pregnant. I am 23 weeks and just had a root canal done on Monday.

  • It is recommended that pregnant women see their dentist due to increase in gum bleeds and gum disease. I would not hesitate to call and make a dental appointment.

  • the bleeding gums is pregnancy gengevitis. And Christy is absolutley right. Poor dental health can cause miscarriages too.
