If necessary: Your question is best answered by a dentist who has examined you, determined what dental treatment is necessary, how urgent it is, and in consultation with you and your Obstetrician. In general, it is in both you and your unborn child's best interests to be free of infections (or other serious dental problems) that are currently present or might develop during the entire course of your pregnancy.
