The safest course of action is to postpone all unnecessary dental work until after birth.

Other wise, the second trimester is most ideal.

If you are in the first tirmester, wait if you can.

And of course make sure the dentist knows what is going on.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
