How Pregnancy Affects Your Dental Health [video]

Pregnancy and Dental Health

Sometimes patients ask us if it’s safe to get dental cleanings and exams during pregnancy. The answer is a resounding “yes!” In fact, not only is it safe, it’s more important than ever to take care of your teeth and gums during this critical period.

Pregnant women are susceptible to hormone-induced periodontal disease. We will check your gums carefully and clean away any bacteria, plaque, and tartar build up. We can also discuss any nutritional concerns you may have. Your baby’s teeth begin forming in utero, so it’s vital to make sure you’re getting enough calcium.

Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about pregnancy and dental health.
