COVID-19 Policy Effective 8/27/21

My dentist needs to take X-rays.  Is this okay?

You should continue to care for your teeth in the normal manner.  If X-rays are necessary, your dentist will shield the baby.  Filling cavities or taking antibiotics, if prescribed by your dentist, is safe and desirable as pregnancy can increase dental disease.  Ampicillin is the most common antibiotic and is safe during pregnancy.
