So, I'm thinking I have a cavity in one of my teeth. It's a tooth that I have needed pulled for quite a while because it's growing in wrong. Would it be okay to wait for them to do anything until after the baby comes? I haven't been to the dentist in forever so I need to go anyway, just wondering what y'all thought.

I've had to have dental work done during my first pregnancy. At this point in the pregnancy it isn't too bad. It's better to get it taken care of. Dental problems can cause a variety of other infection and you don't want to get a severe infection.

I would go in and have it looked at and get a cleaning while you are there if you can. My midwife said that an untreated cavity is worse in pregnancy than having the treatment because it can cause a big infection and that can cause complications. I know it is tempting to put these things off (I hate the dentist!) but in this case I think it would be a good idea to get checked out.

Yep, definately go before it turns into something worse. It would be better to take care of it now than wait til it becomes an emergency later in the third trimester.

I actually have a dentist appointment today and think I need a filling replaced. I am trying to get stuff like this done because I don't want to take a newborn to a dentist appointment. As far as I know, its perfectly safe to have it done now. I will double check today and let you know.

Yes, it's generally recommended, because untreated cavities during pregnancy can lead to gum disease, which has been linked to preterm labor. Better to get it checked out. Just make sure they do know you're pregnant.
