How To Care For Your Teeth During Pregnancy

Posted on 7/24/2023 by Evan
How To Care For Your Teeth During PregnancyAlthough being pregnant might be wonderful, it can also be difficult for your dental health. Your risk of getting gum disease and tooth decay can rise due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. This is why giving your teeth extra attention while pregnant is crucial. Here are three ways you can care for your teeth during pregnancy:

Maintain A Good Oral Hygiene Routine

When you are pregnant, you need to observe your oral hygiene. This entails flossing once daily and brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each. Use toothpaste recommended by dentists to ensure you prevent getting cavities.

If you suffer from morning sickness after vomiting, rinse your mouth with water to remove any acid that can harm your teeth. Also, ask the dentist if there is anything else you can use after vomiting.

Pay Attention To Your Diet

Your diet may also impact your pregnant dental health. Avoid sugary meals as they will lead to tooth decay. Instead, eat meals that are a balanced diet to strengthen your enamel. Drinking enough water throughout the day will wash away the germs and food particles that could cause tooth decay. You can also opt for sugar-free chewing gums.

Visit The Dentist Regularly

Throughout pregnancy, it is crucial to get regular dental exams and cleanings. If there are tooth decay or gum disease indications, the dentist can examine and treat you if necessary. Also, they can offer suggestions on taking care of your teeth and gums while pregnant.

It's generally safe to have dental treatment done during pregnancy, such as fillings or root canals, but it's crucial to let the dentist know so they can take any required measures. Consider calling our office to learn how to care for your teeth during pregnancy.
