  • Abstract

    Pregnancy is a unique period during a woman’s life. It is characterized by physiological and hormonal changes, which may adversely affect oral health. Oral health care during pregnancy cannot be dissociated from systemic health. It represents a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach aiming to empower women’s wellness, then allowing people to understand the importance of caring for their oral and systemic health, from educational measures to pain control and oral disease treatment. Preventive, diagnostic, and restorative dental treatment is safe throughout pregnancy and is effective in improving and maintaining oral health. However, these patients are not medically compromised and should not be denied dental treatment because they are pregnant. This review discusses the possible dental complications of pregnancy and their management.
