With all the issues that arise during a pregnancy, your oral health care can often get lost in the mix. However, it is important to continue to care for your teeth and gums so that future issues do not arise.

Various risks are associated with pregnancy on your oral health. One of the major risks often seen during pregnancies is gum disease. Furthermore, poor oral hygiene during your pregnancy can give rise to other issues such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and premature delivery. To ensure your best chance of success with your pregnancy and your health, schedule routine visits with your dentist while you are pregnant. Be sure to let them know of any prenatal vitamins and medications you are taking.

Make sure that while you’re pregnant you’re eating healthy, not only for the health of your baby but yourself as well. This includes staying away from products that are high in sugar. Furthermore, continue oral health habits long after you are pregnant to ensure your mouth will always remain at the peak condition. In addition, eat well-balanced nutritious meals and focus on brushing and flossing every day as well.
