Oral Health And Pregnancy

 

Counseling and early intervention by healthcare providers such as dentists to provide expectant mothers with the tools and resources necessary to understand the importance of oral health care during pregnancy is very important all throughout pregnancy. The removal as well of the bacterial plaque, which researchers have connected to preterm birth and low birth-weight babies, is essential. Using the correct brushing and flossing methods greatly increase the amount of plaque that is removed from the teeth and gums. Therefore, educating expectant mothers about dental health and the proper diet and nutrition during pregnancy will limit unnecessary sugar intake and in turn, prevent plaque build-up and the formation of cavities. Hence, the importance of taking care of one’s mouth throughout pregnancy is VITAL!
