Dr. C. asks:
I have treatment planned a patient for removing an existing fixed partial denture on teeth # 4 and 6 [maxillary right second premolar and canine; 13, 15] and replacing with new metal ceramic single crowns on # 4 and 6 and an implant and crown in #5 area [maxillary right first premolar; 14]. The patient is currently pregnant and I would have to place the implant and the crowns while she is still pregnant. Should I proceed with the work? I have asked her to wait until after she delivers but she wants this done now. What do you recommend I do?
