Oral Health Care During Pregnancy
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can greatly influence your oral health. You may have an increased risk for getting some form of gum disease, like gingivitis or periodontitis.
Moreover, research has shown a link between serious gum disease and complications during pregnancy like premature births and babies with low-birth-weight. One of the best ways to protect your baby’s health is to be proactive with your oral health during pregnancy. If you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, be sure to maintain a healthy diet and a solid oral health routine, including regular dental cleanings, exams, and good at-home-care.
