Can I Fix Dental Fillings During 38 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
Thank you for the question.
Released dental fillings, should indeed be treated, ie by re-filling. If it turns out that the patched tooth has reached the tooth root hole, then sometimes it is also necessary to do root canal treatment before filling. If this treatment is not carried out, it is not only painful, susceptible to infection which can spread to other organs.
Performing dental care procedures during pregnancy is not absolutely prohibited. If there are indeed medical indications that require it, it is not prohibited to do dental fillings while pregnant. But indeed, this action can trigger premature contractions, making your fetus at risk of being born prematurely.
Therefore, you should check with your dentist right away. The doctor who examined you can certainly consider carefully, whether the dental treatment needs to be done immediately, or can be postponed until after delivery later. Before going to the doctor, it is recommended to:
Not always using teeth that have patches loose to chew food that is too hard and sticky
Brush your teeth more diligently, then rinse with salt solution
Not taking drugs or undergoing any dental treatment during pregnancy without consulting a doctor first
Hope this helps ...
