The mother’s oral health during pregnancy is related closely to the oral health of her newborn. Bad oral hygiene in pregnancy has been associated with various adverse effects, such as premature delivery, intrauterine growth restriction, gestational diabetes, and preeclampsia. Most professional authorities strongly advise pregnant women to continue their usual dental care during pregnancy. Various dental therapeutic aspects raise concern among pregnant women, such as the use of local anesthetics and radiography. However dental treatment of oral conditions is safe during pregnancy and must be managed at any time during this period.
