Also, in the third Trimester the Baby Organs are fully formed and hence long procedures could be fairly discomforting, so only short procedures are recommended. Hence, second Trimester is the only time where it is fine to get a Dental Procedure done but is best to do this subject to approval from your Gynaecologist.
