Oral Health and Pregnancy

It’s important that expectant mothers understand the importance of oral health care throughout their entire pregnancy. Dentists can provide advice as well as regular check-ups to monitor the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth.

We are here for you

Visiting the dentist is important to remove bacterial plaque, which has been connected to pre-term birth and babies with low birth weight. By using the correct brushing and flossing methods, you can also look after your teeth and remove as much plaque as possible at home. We can provide you with advice on dental health and good diet and nutrition during pregnancy to limit sugar intake, prevent plaque build-up, and stop cavities forming.

In addition, the increased level of the hormone progesterone in your body during pregnancy can make you more susceptible to periodontal disease (pregnancy gingivitis). Some women also develop pregnancy granuloma, a growth on the gums which can cause discomfort. If you suffer with morning sickness, another concern might be having an uncomfortable dry mouth and the beginning of tooth erosion. 

Making sure to visit the dentist and take care of your oral health during pregnancy can help to keep you healthier, happier, and more comfortable.
