Your Dental Health Checklist During Pregnancy

Pregnancy affects all different facets of a woman’s body – and her mouth is no exception. In fact, dental health becomes even more important during those nine months of pregnancy. To make sure that your oral health needs are being met, we’ve put together a helpful checklist:

  • Keep Brushing & Flossing – It’s more important than ever to keep brushing and flossing as you normally would. Though tiredness and generally feeling uncomfortable may make you want to forgo the routine once in awhile, keeping your mouth clean will help prevent problems.
  • …Really, Always Floss! – Gingivitis becomes more prevalent during pregnancy; in fact, there is a very specific type of gingivitis that is specific to expecting women. Flossing daily will help to prevent this.
  • Pay Attention to Changes – If you notice any changes to your mouth, gums, tongue, or teeth, be sure to let the dentist know as soon as possible. Some things are common, such as tastebuds changing or excess saliva. But other changes may need to be further explored.
  • Take Supplements – Calcium, vitamin D, C, A, phosphorous, and protein are all important during pregnancy, not only for your dental health but also the baby’s. Their teeth begin to develop at 3 to 6 months of pregnancy, and supplements will play a key role in keeping them healthy.
  • Keep Up Visits to Southeast Dental – It may be a good idea to have more frequent dental visits during your pregnancy, to ensure that any changes are looked at and potential problems are prevented. Call Southeast Dental at 905-471-2002, or book online at your convenience. We’ll make sure that your dental health is well taken care of while you’re pregnant.
