The wellbeing of your child is paramount, especially when you’re expectant. To keep your baby healthy during all the trimesters of pregnancy, it’s important to checkup the dentist’s office for certain appointments like regular inspections and cleanings. We often get asked about X-rays by expecting mothers. Contrary to what you might believe, X-rays are safe for expectant women; no lone dose of radiation from an X-ray is momentous enough to impact an advancing embryo, and we’ll take extra safety measures by shielding your stomach with an X-ray shield.

Additionally, most medicines utilized in dentistry are safe for expectant women, as are anesthetics utilized in some advanced procedures. While X-rays, oral medicines and dental cleanings are safe for women about to have children, whitenings and cosmetic dentistry services may be best left until after the baby is born. Although the risks associated with such procedures are extremely insignificant, it’s smartest to put non-emergency services such as these off until after the birth of the child. If you are pregnant, please let us know so that we can put together a great service plan for your health and the wellbeing of your child.
