Will I be able to get enough nutrition while I'm pregnant if I have tooth loss?

I am a 30 year old female. I really want to get pregnant and have a baby. I have some bad teeth and have anxiety that if I lost some of my teeth and couldn't chew properly that I wouldn't be able to get enough nutrition to support a baby. How reliable are partial dentures for getting good nutrition? Do you think I could still have a healthy baby if I lost some teeth and couldn't eat properly?

Please read the article listed below. I would highly recommend visiting your dentist and having a thorough evaluation. It sounds like you may have perodontitis (inflammation and bone loss around your teeth) that is causing your teeth to be loose. If this infection is present while you are pregnant it could cause more problems than you realize... even more than just your concerns with nutrition.
