Agoura Hills Dentist, Philip Shindler DDS, Comments on the New Research about Dental Care during Pregnancy
Date:1/18/2017

During pregnancy, women are at an increased risk of dental problems ranging from gum disease to enamel erosion, and those dental problems can increase the risk of pregnancy complications. Unfortunately, according to research from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, many pregnant women are failing to get the dental care they need. Agoura Hills dentist, Philip Shindler DDS, comments on this new research about dental care during pregnancy.

According to the study, about fifty percent of pregnant women scheduled routine dental cleanings during their pregnancies. For many years, a myth has persisted that dentistry is not safe for pregnant women, and this has kept them from getting the care they need. Although patients do need to notify Dr. Shindler of their pregnancy status at their appointments, it can be helpful if they do. He can take any necessary precautions while still providing them with essential treatments.

“During pregnancy, the risk of pregnancy-related dental issues increases as a result of morning sickness, increased blood flow, gastric reflux, and heightened sensitivity to oral bacteria,” comments Dr. Shindler. A different study performed in 2011 linked periodontitis, or gum disease, to low birth weights, preterm labor, and miscarriage. Inflammation is linked to bacterial vaginosis, which is also linked to pregnancy complications.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology has stated that dental care is safe and effective during pregnancy, including:

  • Dental X-rays with shielding of the abdomen and thyroid
  • Local anesthesia
  • Dental extractions
  • Dental fillings
  • Root canal treatments

Delaying these treatments can lead to a worsened condition and increased risks to the pregnancy.
