Brushing for two — oral care important for you and baby

During pregnancy, remember – you’re really brushing for two. Studies have shown that only half of the women who have oral health problems during pregnancy seek treatment. Not great news considering how important it is to take care of your oral health, especially during pregnancy.

Here are some things to remember to protect your oral health and give your baby the best chance at a healthy smile:

  • Studies suggest that women with good oral health prior to and during pregnancy may delay or prevent the onset of cavities in their young children.
  • A dental check-up during pregnancy is a great time to receive guidance from your dentist on taking care of your new baby’s oral health.
  • When you are pregnant, what you eat is important. Follow your doctor’s advice for eating the right foods and taking vitamins.
  • Periodontal disease may become a bigger problem during pregnancy, so schedule a complete dental checkup before you become pregnant or early in your pregnancy.
  • Hormonal changes may make your teeth and gums more susceptible to dental disease (gingivitis and tooth decay).

 

It’s also important to remember that you can receive routine or emergency dental care during pregnancy with a few tips:

  • Try to avoid routine dental care during the first trimester and later part of the third trimester.
  • If a dental emergency arises, be sure to let your dentist know that you are pregnant. He or she will know what precautions need to be taken to resolve your dental problem.
  • If you need cavities filled or other necessary procedures, the second trimester is the best time. Elective procedures like tooth whitening or other cosmetic work should be delayed until after the baby is delivered.
