Can pregnant teeth be treated?

Immediately dot the “and”: women in a position not only possible, but definitely need to go to the dentist and monitor the health of the teeth. Even if before the birth of the baby, you still have a thousand urgent tasks planned, take a couple of hours so as not to miss the next visit to the doctor.

Dentists advise to check the condition of the teeth every six months, which means that in 9 months the meeting with the doctor should take place at least once. Otherwise, there is a risk to wait for caries or inflammation of the gums – all you need is to let the matter run free (that is, not to go to the dentist and not to be treated) for only a year.

As a result, an infection from a sick tooth can go on a journey around the body, and sometimes even get to the baby.

By the way, the opinion that during pregnancy a woman cannot be X-rayed and her teeth treated with anesthesia is also nothing more than a delusion. One or two X-rays will not harm the child if, before the procedure, the doctor covers the future mom’s stomach with a lead apron. The same can be said about local anesthesia: there are enough medications that are safe during pregnancy.

In addition, anesthesia can cure a tooth without pain, and thus relieves both mother and future baby from stress.

It is best to treat your teeth and gums right after you have planned the birth of your baby, so that during pregnancy this problem will not bother you anymore.

Based on scientific studies, experts say that this proverb is not too close to the truth. Pregnancy does not affect the strength of the teeth (in other words, the content of calcium in them), because our “pearls” are saturated with this substance for life in childhood.

That is why drinking calcium supplements in the hope of strengthening your teeth is useless.

If, during the waiting and after the birth of the baby, the woman has problems with her teeth, it is the process that began before the pregnancy and went unheeded. And perhaps the reason is that the expectant mother is not too diligently caring for teeth and gums.

During pregnancy, even the most exemplary patients sometimes change their good habits – for example, they stop brushing their teeth if they notice that the gums have begun to bleed.

To strengthen the teeth, the doctor may advise a woman to take vitamin D, which helps shape the skeleton and teeth of the unborn baby, accumulating calcium in them. Due to the deficiency of this component, calcium is poorly absorbed, and the bone tissue becomes fragile.

Vitamin D is formed directly in the skin under the action of ultraviolet rays, and therefore obstetricians are more often advised to take it in the cold season, when it is difficult to call the weather sunny. In the summer, it is not necessary to take this element – the body itself will take care of its production.

  • endure a toothache (these feelings can cause a threatened abortion);
  • use drugs arsenic – dentists sometimes use them when they remove the dental nerves, but the woman “in position” the doctor should offer a gentle local anesthesia;
  • put seals, which include mercury (it is dangerous to the health of the baby);
  • remove wisdom teeth (this is too serious an operation for the future mother).

In contrast to the situations described above, gum problems often first occur in women during pregnancy. Because of hormonal restructuring, the gums of the future mother may bleed, but this problem is temporary: more often it appears by the third month of waiting and ends by the seventh month.

In women who are predisposed to periodontal disease (the so-called weakness of the tissues surrounding the teeth, which leads to inflammation), the gums can become inflamed, swell up and hurt – in this case, doctors talk about gingivitis.

Turning to the dentist, the woman, among other things, will receive advice to brush her teeth with a soft brush in order to remove irritating gums from them. This procedure should not be abandoned, even if the gums bleed.

Hormonal changes sometimes cause a phenomenon that often causes anxiety in expectant mothers – sores on the oral mucosa. True, they will only disturb those “chosen ones” who have already appeared before.

And rinsing will help to cope with them, preventing the formation of plaque.
