Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As you have done C-section before three months, it is safe to visit a dentist for getting treatment. You will be giving breastfeeding to your baby and you need to take some precautions. You need to take safe antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines during feeding. It is important to inform your feeding history to your dentist before taking any prescribed antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines. You need to take intraoral clinical photographs or dental X-rays IOPA (intraoral periapical radiograph) or OPG (orthopantomogram). Please mention your medical history or any intake of medicines or allergy to medicines to your dentist before taking treatment for this issue.


Investigations to be done:

You need to take intraoral clinical photographs and dental X-rays IOPA (intraoral periapical radiographs) or OPG (orthopantomogram).

Preventive measures:

Brush your tooth twice daily with a fluoride-containing paste. Use interdental floss for cleaning the surface, spaces, and contacts between the teeth. Do salt water gargling every day after taking meals. Do tongue cleaning on regular basis. Have a check-up every six months by consulting your dentist. Do tooth cleaning and polishing once every six months.
