i feel like i'm falling apart!! The last couple of days my gums have started bleeding when i brush them (still makes me gag too ). Also, i'm starting to have a tender spot above where i need a filling, so worried i may need a root canal (i;ve been avoiding the dentist like an idiot..) Anyone had any dental care while they're pregnant? I normally go privately, because i'm quite a nervous patient. I know you get free dental care when you're preggers, but where i live in London most of the NHS surgeries don't seem to be taking on non paying patients. So i may just bite the bullet and go private again, even though i'm not working at the mo. I'm just a bit worried as i've read that tooth infections can be harmful during pregnancy....if it's not one thing it's another!!!
