It is an exciting time in life when you become pregnant, and your dental care becomes more important than ever! The combination of nausea, hormones, increased snacking, and lack of focus on your oral health during this time can create issues for your gums, your teeth, and even your baby. Studies have linked periodontal disease with increased risk of preeclampsia, lower than normal birth weights, and even premature birth.
If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant we recommend seeing a dentist for a cleaning and exam to assess your oral health condition and come up with a plan for the duration of your pregnancy.
Our team will always be available to help answer any questions that you may have about your dental needs during your pregnancy. The best way to ensure that no serious problems occur is to make sure you are keeping up withy your regular dental visits and at home-care. Be sure to floss and brush regularly, and get in for those professional cleanings. This allows your dentist to identify any problems and treat them before they become more serious.
