To ensure your teeth and gums can continue to thrive even with a pregnancy, make sure that you continue to clean them properly. If you have any issues with your oral health while pregnant, visit our dentist and let them know of your condition. Be sure to let our dentist know about any prenatal vitamins you may be taking and to assess treatment plans to ensure your oral hygiene can go smoothly throughout your pregnancy.

If you fail to properly care for your oral hygiene when you’re pregnant, you could find yourself vulnerable to several health risks including gestational diabetes, premature delivery and preeclampsia. To ensure your smile and your child’s health are not endangered, continue to clean your mouth out throughout your pregnancy. Furthermore, place emphasis on your diet and eliminate any dietary restrictions or issues that can increase your risk for gum disease or other problems that can arise due to a pregnancy. For additional help with your oral health care, visit our dentist while pregnant.
