New Year | New Baby
As the end of the year draws near, we are all looking forward to spending time with close family and friends. This year, our office has a little something extra to celebrate. Our very own, Dr. Mira Diora, and her husband are expecting baby boy number two!
If you or someone you know is expecting a bundle of joy this holiday season, keep in mind the following:
- You should let your dental office know you are pregnant.
- Yes, it is safe to have an x-ray taken and your clinician will cover your abdomen with a lead apron to minimize exposure. Keep in mind radiation from dental x-rays are extremely low.
- If you need a composite, root canal treatment, or an extraction, it is safe to use a numbing medication for both you and your baby.
- Your dentist may recommend cleanings more frequently as some women can develop pregnancy gingivitis. This is inflammation that can cause both swelling and tenderness when brushing or flossing.
Dental care when pregnant is a crucial. Drs. Hochberg and Diora are here to help with any questions and wish both you and your little one a healthy New Year!
