Hazards of orthodontics during pregnancy Mainly affect fetal development.
It is not possible to straighten your teeth during pregnancy, so as not to cause gum pain when straightening your teeth, leading to physical discomfort and increasing the chance of miscarriage. In addition, after the teeth are corrected, there are more restrictions on the diet, which will cause fetal growth retardation. In addition, you may need to extract teeth, use anesthetics, wear braces, and take X-rays when correcting your teeth. These matters will affect the health of pregnant women. At the same time, pregnant women are prone to oral diseases during pregnancy. It is recommended that people who need to correct their teeth avoid the period of pregnancy as much as possible.
Pregnant women are advised to drink plenty of water. It is best to drink warm water. Avoid strong tea, coffee and other irritating beverages that can cause decalcification or anemia.
