Yes I think it's advisable to go when you're pregnant as your gums can get very tender and swollen and bleed while pg. AFAIK you can't have fillings, but your dentist will know for sure.

Yes definitely I can't see why not but do mention to them that you are in early stages of pregnancy so they will not take x-rays and such.

ps tigglets you can have fillings while your pregnant. But I would not recommend amalgams(small amount of mercury)!!

Oh God, another thing to worry about - what about orthodontics? Still braced up for the next couple of months.
