Gravidity is defined as the development of the young in utero. It initiates hormonal, psychological and physiological changes in the female patient, providing the dentist with many questions about the management of these patients. These physiologic alterations, as well as the embryologic development of the fetus, will be discussed along with the treatment alterations that should be considered. The changes are often subtle, but can lead to disastrous complications if proper precautions are not taken. Conversely, appropriate management of routine and dental emergencies can be denied by the practitioner because of misconceptions about pregnancy and fetal tolerance. Anesthetic and pharmacology of agents used in dentistry in treating the pregnant patient will be reviewed.
