Expectant mothers are often prone to gum disease and dental pain due to several things:
- Hormone changes make them more susceptible to gum disease
- Pregnant women often eat smaller and more frequent meals, which exposes their teeth to harmful acids and sugars more often
- Cravings for junk food create an increased threat to the gums and teeth
Maintaining good oral hygiene is just as, if not more, important when you are pregnant as when you are not. Please contact us today to learn more about preventive dentistry and how to remain healthy during your pregnancy.
