Do you also suggest that any dental treatment to be postponed while pregnant? Probably just fillings to be done. Thanks again for your response.

You are very welcome. If your cavities are minor, you may want to wait to have them filled. However, if you
have a substantially sizable cavity, the risks of getting a filling placed are offset by the risks of
bacteria from your cavity in your system! Another potential risk you would face is that of the
anesthetic in your blood stream during treatment, so if you can complete the filling without anesthetic you
are also better off. Sometimes, we can also place a less invasive temporary filling until you are out of
any risk. Your dentist will be able to assess the risks vs. needs for you.
