Tooth Decay

Dental restoration such as cavity filling or crowns should be treated to reduce the chance of infection. The second trimester is the most ideal time for pregnant women to have this dental work administered. Cavity fillings and crowns are to correct decayed areas of your teeth that have developed tiny openings or holes.

It is recommended that the safest course of action is to postpone all unnecessary dental work until after the birth. However, sometimes emergency dental work such as a root canal or tooth extraction is necessary. Updated: 04.17.21
