Up to now, dental implants are the most popular solution to restore lost teeth. Anyone who is in good health can perform dental implants right away. For the purpose of preventing jaw bone loss, and maintaining a healthy smile, the sooner the tooth is restored the better. So is it possible to get dental implant while pregnant?
To answer this question, we need to learn a little bit about pregnancy and dental implants.
What are the differences in the oral care regimen for pregnant women?
For pregnant women, dentists always encourage pregnant women to have a careful oral care regimen. Proper oral hygiene, regular check-ups at the stages before – during and after pregnancy. Because this will help you prevent the best dental disease.
During pregnancy, after the first trimester, you can perform some simple treatments such as scaling, fillings, etc.
In theory, making porcelain crowns, root canal treatment or dental implants can also be done at this stage. However, in practice, most dentists carefully assess the need for each procedure. Often dental implant surgery will be encouraged to move to the period after you give birth.
Why do you need to wait longer without dental implant while pregnant?
According to medical studies, local anesthesia is safe for pregnant women. However, when it comes to dental implants, anesthesia requires a stronger dose and impact. This will have the risk of having an adverse effect on the pregnant woman or the unborn baby.
On the other hand, some steps in the dental implant process require an X-ray scan or CT cone beam scan. And this also brings bad risks to pregnant women if done in the first 3 months of pregnancy.
