Baby On Board!
Congratulations on this exciting time of your life! You have so much to think about during pregnancy from nutrition to what color you may paint the nursery, but don't overlook your dental health.
The levels of hormones are increasing during pregnancy. You may notice swollen or bleeding gums, which is known as Pregnancy Gingivitis.
If your already bushing twice a day and cleaning between your teeth once a day, keep up the good work! If not, there’s no better time to start, as poor habits during pregnancy have been associated with premature delivery, intrauterine growth restriction, gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia.
Make sure your eating a balanced diet and getting all your vitamins, because your nutrition affects the babies development and their teeth. The babies teeth are forming between 3 and 6 months of pregnancy.
