Teeth Tips for Moms-To-Be

Posted on May 28, 2013 in General oral health

During pregnancy your hormones change which can contribute to “pregnancy gingivitis”.
Here a few ways to protect your smile:

• Maintain a good dental hygiene routine. Brush twice a day and floss at least once a day.
• Pregnant women should visit their dentist more often, about every 3 months.
• Rinse your mouth out with water if you find yourself praying to the porcelain gods in the morning.
• Eat a healthy diet, not just for your growing baby for your overall health too!

If you have a healthy mouth during pregnancy, your baby will be more likely to have a healthy mouth as well.
