Experts Say All Types of Dental Care Safe During Pregnancy

There’s no need for pregnant women to worry about dental treatment or x-rays.

A U.S. obstetrician/gynecologist group stated that these dental procedures are completely safe. The group also recommended ob-gyns to perform dental health tests during a woman’s first prenatal visit. This helps spur patients to routinely visit the dentist during pregnancy.

Since oral health problems could lead to heart disease, diabetes or countless other problems, it’s essential for women to see the dentist during pregnancy.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Committee on Health Care for Underserved Women acknowledged that 35 percent of women say they haven’t seen a dentist in the past year. Also, roughly 40 percent of pregnant women in the United States have cavities or gum disease.

Physical changes from pregnancy may alter the teeth and gums. Dental issues during pregnancy are most prevalent among smokers and women on public assistance.

There are numerous benefits to maintaining good oral health during pregnancy, particularly that it will reduce the possibility of the mother transmitting cavity-causing bacteria to the baby. This will also result in the child being at a lower risk for cavities in the future.
