Can you get braces while being pregnant?
desaraesky posted:
I'm getting braces next month and I'm 11 weeks pregnant. Can I still get braces next month?
atti_editor responded:
Hi desaraesky,

I think that this is something that you should discuss with both your OB and dentist, as the answer may differ from person-to-person and pregnancy-to-pregnancy. Oral health is very important during pregnancy so discussing these things with your dentist is important -- here is more information on the subject.

Best wishes,

Thank you.

Hi there, when I got pregnant with my daughter the first thing that my OB told me was not to wear my retainers or anything even braces because I might eat some parts and get choked. She also told me that anything that will fall off inside my mouth (even if it is an accident) is not allowed because of the danger that might happen. Or, if better ask also with your OB about it. And I just wanted to share with you a site that could help you calculate your due date and more which is just for free. God Bless.
