In brief: No

It is important that you have a healthy mouth.
Too often dental health is neglected during pregnancy, resulting in problems for mother after baby is born. Follow your dentist's care instructions to the letter. Your hormonal balance changes may make care more challenging. There are some studies that show relationship of gum disease to premature birth rate, so get them clean!
