Antibiotic in pregnancy

In general, all major dental treatments should be done before or after pregnancy. Since gingivitis is not an acute disease, but also continues for a long time before pregnancy, there is usually no indication for an accompanying antibiotic therapy. Often the hormonal changes cause gum problems, but these go back after the birth.

However, if aggressive bacteria are responsible for the inflammation, they must be combated. Antibiotics from the groups of penicillins, cephalosporins and markrolide antibiotics are recommended during pregnancy as they do not have a germ-damaging effect.
