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 patient’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.
