What do I need to know? If work needs to be done, what should absolutely be avoided? We have access to porcelain fillings here (better?)? We're on the US/Mexico border, and so have access to cheap-ish dental care. I have a recommendation for someone, but I also work in health care here and we see some *crazy* stuff! I feel that I would absolutely be respected if I said yes or no to something in specific, but don't have the information I need to feel confident about decisions. It's mostly fillings. I could use a cleaning (it's been a year), but am comfortable waiting on the cleaning. Are there certain things you would only do in certain trimesters?
Thanks so much!
For greater things are yet to come...
I still had all my cleanings. I would not skip the cleanings if I were you because pregnancy can cause the gums to be inflamed and that can lead to gum disease. It's extra important to take care of your gums and teeth during pregnancy for this reason.
