See dentist: Please see a dentist and advise her/him of your pregnant state. Let the dentist decide what would be an appropriate treatment in the first trimester.

If there is a tooth: ache, the cause might require dental intervention. Although pregnancy is a time that is best to put off elective/ cosmetic procedures - sometimes they are necessary.

Go now: Inform Dentist that you are pregnant. If there are any medical complications have Dentist consult with your OBGyn. Resolving dental problems during pregnancy is extremely safe. Not treating dental problems can result in premature delivery and/or low birth weight. Call Dentist now.

Dental treatment: All necessary dental treatment can be safe within certain established guidelines. It is best that your dentist consult with your OBGYN doctor to discuss any precautions. It is generally more dangerous for you and your unborn child to postpone needed dental treatment.Elective dental treatment should be postponed. Congratulations and Good Luck.
