The pregnant or lactating patient presents with a number of unique management problems for oral health care providers. Practitioners with minimal training in gestational medicine may be hesitant to treat their pregnant patients. Because of a fear of injuring either the mother or unborn child, some practitioners may withhold care or medications from their patients, inadvertently causing harm. An understanding of the patientâ€™s physiological changes, the effects of chronic infection or illicit drugs and the risks or benefits of medications are necessary to adequately advise a patient on her options regarding medical/dental care.
