Preg­nan­cy is a long and phys­i­o­log­i­cal­ly com­plex process. After all, for nine whole months a woman sup­plies all the vital ele­ments to the fetus — in par­tic­u­lar, both phos­pho­rus and cal­ci­um, which is in the body of a preg­nant woman, ensure the for­ma­tion of the bone skele­ton of a devel­op­ing fetus. It is not sur­pris­ing that the enam­el on the teeth of the expec­tant moth­er becomes thin­ner, which is why the teeth them­selves are active­ly exposed to microor­gan­isms — and this, in turn, leads to caries. But a dis­eased tooth will already become a source of open infec­tion.

It is advis­able to cure all teeth before preg­nan­cy. If prob­lems with the teeth arose dur­ing the bear­ing of the crumbs, then you should not post­pone a vis­it to the den­tist. Of course, the treat­ment process also includes pain relief, which is why many moth­ers doubt the advis­abil­i­ty of treat­ment — after all, med­ica­tions can also be harm­ful. How­ev­er, anes­the­sia will cer­tain­ly be required — for exam­ple, if you need to remove a tooth or cure deep caries.

So it is pos­si­ble to treat preg­nant teeth with anes­the­sia, but you should under­stand what will hap­pen to your body. The anes­thet­ic is admin­is­tered by injec­tion into the gum and after a few min­utes the patient will not feel pain. For the most part, in such prepa­ra­tions, the basis is adren­a­line, which reduces bleed­ing and blocks pain. How­ev­er, adren­a­line can pro­voke uter­ine tone and an increase in blood pres­sure.

Mod­ern med­i­cine has devel­oped sev­er­al drugs with a min­i­mum con­tent of adren­a­line (the so-called arti­caine series). A good option would be ultra­caine, which prac­ti­cal­ly does not pen­e­trate the pla­cen­tal bar­ri­er. So you should cer­tain­ly warn the doc­tor about your inter­est­ing sit­u­a­tion so that he can choose the safest drug. More­over, the dose should be select­ed indi­vid­u­al­ly — tak­ing into account the dura­tion of preg­nan­cy, the age of the woman and her gen­er­al state of health. Pri­macaine, which has a min­i­mal aller­genic effect, is also con­sid­ered a pop­u­lar drug from this group.

How­ev­er, there are manip­u­la­tions with teeth that are pro­hib­it­ed dur­ing preg­nan­cy — this is, in par­tic­u­lar, whiten­ing, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly thins the already rapid­ly wear­ing out enam­el. The for­bid­den list also includes implan­ta­tion and gen­er­al anes­the­sia. If you are pre­scribed an x‑ray, then make sure that your stom­ach is cov­ered with a lead apron.
