I’m not sure at all, but try looking on the manufacturer’s website… they might have a faq section, or a contact form where you can ask. Or google, if none of the prego ladies respond with their findings.OOOOh or call your dentist.

A good rule of thumb is to avoid anything you don’t know for sure about- which is what you seem to be doing so good job 🙂

I used them when I was pregnant, and my son wasn’t born with two heads..lol

Well, so far there’s been no evidence that bleaching your teeth harms the baby… here’s an article also that says it’s safe (see link below) but I’d suggest reading the label and consulting your OB nurse/doctor before using them. Also I’d suggest not using them until after the first trimester because the first trimester is the MOST important and it’s dangerous to do a lot of things during it..

But that being said, I used them when I was pregnant with my son, and it was fine..I only used them once a day instead of twice and not every single day.. more like 2-3 x’s a week. Hope that helps! 🙂

I don’t really know for sure but I have heard that you can probably use them if they do not contain peroxide. BUT it is best to speak with your OB in conjunction with your dentist. They should be able to give you the info you are requesting.

I wanted to use them while I was preggo too..  Everything I read said that they were untested in pregnant women so they were not recomended.  And that since many pregnant women have sensitive gums you should be careful if you do use them.

I decided not to use them though I doubt there is much risk.

My thinking about teeth whitening was this.  Pregnancy already causes women to leach calcium stores from all over their body.  Whitening may predispose us to slight weakening of the enamel anyway… So I didn’t want to create a problem with my teeth where there was none before!
