X-rays during pregnancy!

Should I go to the dentist during pregnancy?

Is it safe?

👉I will say this: it is much more dangerous to walk around with an infection in the body.

The biggest question mothers-to-be have, is if they can have x-rays taken during their pregnancy.

I want to tell you more about it, like ❤️ if you find this useful.

✋It is better to postpone X-rays of teeth.

But if it is extremely necessary, then the doctor can decide on the spot if x-rays should be taken.

It all depends on the length of pregnancy.

✔️We recommend taking pictures from about 20 weeks, when all the vital organs of the baby and the placental barrier are formed.

📸The possibility of an X-ray during pregnancy causing harm to your unborn child is very small. Generally, the benefits of the diagnostic information from an X-ray outweigh the potential risk to a baby.

A lead apron will be worn to provide protection from radiation scatter. This keeps risk to a minimum.

✔️Pregnant women MAY and SHOULD go to the dentist.

✔️Anesthesia can be safely performed starting from the 16th week of pregnancy.

✔️Ideally, do a professional tooth cleaning once every 6 months.

✔️Wisdom teeth extractions and dental implants should be postponed until your baby is born, because after the procedures, you need to take antibiotics.

✔️Do not neglect regular hygiene and brush your teeth 2 times a day.

❗And remember that the mother's tooth decay significantly increases the risk of decay in the child.
