How will my pregnancy affect visits to the dentist?

During pregnancy the change in hormones increases the blood flow to the gums causing them to become inflamed. So it is important to have good oral hygiene and visit the dentist for a routine check-up and cleaning.

The safest course of action is to postpone all unnecessary dental work until after the birth. If dental work is done during pregnancy the second trimester is ideal. However, sometimes emergency dental work such as root canal or tooth extraction is necessary.
