Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet during pregnancy is an important contributor to the health of your baby. Your oral health and dental care are major factors in your overall health, and it is therefore important for you to ensure they are both of the highest level possible.
It is highly advisable for pregnant women to visit their dentist during the period in which they are carrying their child. This is because pregnant women are susceptible to bleeding gums and build-up of plaque during this time.
It is therefore a good idea to visit your dentist during pregnancy, as a greater level of dental care may be required during this time. Follow the advice of the dentist with regards to you oral health care regime and the regularity with which you should return for future visits.
It is also recommended for you to ask the dentist any questions you may have about your baby’s future dental care following birth – including recommended dietary information and when you should bring your child to the practice for their first appointment with the dentist.
