If you are only planning a pregnancy, then within 2 -3 months before the main point it is necessary to undergo a dental examination. This is necessary in order to avoid dental treatment in the future in those periods when teeth cannot be treated. Remember – it is forbidden to have treatment of teeth for pregnant women up to 16 weeks (i.e., the first trimester and the first half of the second). It is the moment when a placental barrier is formed. The embryo is actively developing, and there is a probability of pathology or miscarriage.

If suddenly a pregnancy is not planned, or in the first three months you have "showered" teeth, and a toothache does not leave you alone, the treatment occurs only with the permission of the gynecologist.
