There are several oral issues which expectant mothers should be aware of. Scheduling an appointment with your dentist will help you to avoid potential complications.
– Hormones can affect the health of the mother’s teeth and gums.
– Poor oral hygiene can actually be passed down from the mother to the infant.
– Mother’s gum disease can lead to low birth weight and premature delivery
Dental treatment is safe during pregnancy, including local anaesthesia and x-rays, so there is no need to delay treatment.
“If you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant, this is a great time to schedule an appointment with your dentist!”
