Ladies anyone had tooth pain while pregnant? Is it worth going to see the dentist… aka, specifically I’m wondering whether there’s much they can do if they can’t take x rays. I’m going to call in the morning to ask them what they recommend but figured I’d ask if anyone has experience with this!

I invested in a pricy electric toothbrush due to pregnancy. If you haven’t made that switch, do it! Cleans so much better than manually and mine had a sensitive setting. It’s very important to take care of your teeth during pregnancy. You’re more prone to gum diseases, and infections can lead to pre-term labor!

I had a dentist recommend that i stop using my sonicare bc of my gums bleeding. I had to change to this new dentist post partum bc my insurance changed. New dentist couldn’t believe i was told that and asked if i still had it. Said switch back to electric immediately.

I did and also i basically need a new mouth post partum. Things no one tells you… My doctors office gave me a sheet of dos and donts during dental appointments. I think X-rays was a dont - you can probably find it online if your OB has a prenatal care package

My mom had like 4 cavities while she was pregnant with me. It’s super common that your teeth are more prone to decay. Go see your dentist just in case

Yep, I brush several times a day and floss daily and still got 3 cavities with my first and 4 with my second. My dentist said the pH change in your mouth during pregnancy can cause demineralization. Even if you can’t get the x-ray, a visual inspection, prescription- grade fluoride toothpaste, and pain meds will go a long way!

I've had dentists scam me into trying to fix every tooth. Got it checked by a family member who is a dentist 6+ months later and everything was fine. So don't believe anything unless it hurts. Got a filling, a crown and cleaning during pregnancy. They will put a different anesthetic if you are pregnant and do a slightly different procedure so that it lasts a year, allowing you to come back post baby instead of a few weeks later for a follow up. Talk to them before you go, and tell them when making the appointment so they can plan accordingly.

Yep I had two cavities post baby And haven’t had cavities for a long time

Yup cavities and my gums would bleed from flossing. So between this and my post partum baldness I’m crushing it lol

My school has been face to face for 7 weeks. The promise is that the kids on the school bus have to wear masks. One of my students recorded and uploaded a video to Youtube. In the video the kids were 3 to a seat, no masks, hopping across seats hitting each other. 😐 I had the kid take it off Youtube and sent the video to administration. What are we doing? It’s sickening.

The world population is nearing 8 billion! How do you feel about humans overpopulating mother earth and depleting resources and destroying natural habitats? And why are those of us who choose not to have kids still the black sheep in today’s overpopulated world? Are people just not getting the memo? Is denial at play here or under-education? Or perhaps cultural norms that are outdated, but still very influential?

Ladies, I had a breakthrough with my boyfriend and I am so proud. I have encouraged him to go to therapy for years. He grew up with a father who is emotionally abusive. He felt like he didn’t need to go because he could just “handle it” (part of the toxic culture he was raised in) so I stopped pushing. Yesterday he told me he was going to therapy to try it out, I said okay, and made him a coffee to go. He came home, hugged me, cried, and read me a list of things he was working on. 🥺💛
