Common Questions About Pregnancy Safety

Can I Have Dental Work Done?

Generally, yes. Local anesthesia isn't thought to have any negative effect on the fetus. If possible, postpone X-rays or surgeries requiring general anesthesia until after your baby is born. If an X-ray is necessary, be sure that the dentist knows you're pregnant so he can shield your abdomen to minimize the radiation that reaches the fetus.
