When you are pregnant, you have numerous trips to the doctor and a lot to think about for your precious child’s arrival. Maintaining regular dental visits and keeping a vigilant eye on your oral health is also essential to a healthy baby.
Gum disease during pregnancy is common. That is why it is especially important to make regular visits to the dentist during this special time. We will examine your gums and note any changes to your health. Because of hormonal changes, you may notice bleeding where there wasn’t any in the past. Together, we can work to keep pregnancy gingivitis under control.
Our hygiene department can help you adjust your home care habits, products, and diet to keep your gums healthy and free from infection during pregnancy.
Maintaining the health of your gums while you carry your child is essential. Periodontal disease has been linked to low birth weight babies and premature birth. If you notice your gums bleeding more than usual or feeling tender, contact us right away to schedule. Together, we can support your overall health with quality dental care so your little one has the best chance for a good, healthy start.
