Pregnancy and Dental Health
Congratulation! With so many doctor appointments and check up, what about your teeth?
The American Dental Association, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics all encourage women to get dental care while pregnant. Although many women make it nine months with no dental discomfort, pregnancy can make some conditions worse – or create new ones. Regular checkups and good dental health habits can help keep you and your baby healthy. We recommend check up in second trimester to prevent cavities from developing or pregnancy gingivitis.
