Hi I am 8 weeks pregnant. I have not been to a dentist for a long time. My teeth are yellow and I am very embarrassed to come in for that reason. I have a gum boil that is really starting to bother me. Would you suggest that when I make my appointment I warn them my teeth are bad and disgusting? I just really want to get them fixed since they are taking over my life. Any advice would help. Thanks.

  • You shouldn't be embarrased to see a dentist as you are going for betterment and it shows that you are aware of your oral health and there is no harm in getting professional cleaning done. By this you are warding off harmfull bacteria that can lead to further infection. Moreover teeth cleaning is encourage during pregnancy as it is good for both mother and baby. 

    Just stay calm and talk to your dentist freely regarding your hesitation...To know about dental care during pregnancy you can visit the link ....http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-care-during-pregnancy-15.aspx
