Pregnancy & Dental Health

As we all know, there are a lot of changes that occur in a woman’s body when she is pregnant – and her mouth is no exception. Throughout those nine months oral health becomes even more important than ever, as it affects both the mother and baby. But there are easy ways to ensure that the mouth is well taken care of. Here are some tips to help!

Brush, Brush, Brush It’s always important to brush, but as a preventative measure during pregnancy, it’s even more imperative. Though brushing may be the last thing you want to do, remember that it can help keep other oral problems at bay. So pick up that toothbrush!

Don’t Forget the Floss! – Did you know that there’s a higher chance of developing gingivitis during pregnancy? In fact, there’s a specific type of gingivitis only found in women who are expecting. The best way to prevent gum disease is a routine tag team of brushing and flossing, at least twice daily.

Pay Attention to Nutrition – The right vitamins and minerals are important for both mother and baby, but sometimes it’s difficult to eat the healthy foods needed to ensure you’re getting them all. In that case, supplements can be very helpful – calcium, phosphorous, and vitamin D, A, and C can all easily be taken in pill form.

Keep Track of Changes – During pregnancy, the mouth can go through quite a few changes. Some are common, like changing taste buds, or excessive saliva – but if you notice any other changes to your mouth, gums, teeth, or tongue, take note and be sure to tell your dentist right away.

Regular Visits at Southeast Dental – Even with all of the added doctors visits a pregnancy requires, your regular dental visits are also a must. 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.
