Hello just a quick question. I know that you should not have certain dental work done during pregnancy but is that just for the first trimester? Thank you.
tbkittycat responded:
It depends on what the dental work is. Most dentists will not do an x-ray on a pregnant woman, no matter what trimester she is in. If it's something that can be done using local anesthesia, that should be okay.

Good question!

Here's a WebMD article with more info:

Dental Care Before, During & After Pregnancy

Interesting to note that, as a precautionary measure, dental treatments during the first trimester and second half of the third trimester should be avoided as much as possible.

Be sure to discuss with your dentist!
