Pregnancy is an exciting stage in life for many people. Although it’s exciting and wonderful, it’s oftentimes not that way for the smile, especially if you fail to take good care of the teeth and gums. Unfortunately, there are many dental issues that can evolve during pregnancy, like brittle teeth, eroded tooth enamel, and pregnancy gingivitis. So, please remember to take good care of your teeth, gums, and smile. Our dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], is happy to help you do so by giving you the tips you need.
First, keep up on oral hygiene like your life depended on it—because your smile’s life depends on it. All you need to do is brush twice a day, floss once a day, rinse daily, and attend your regular dental cleaning and exam appointments. When you come to our office, tell our team you’re pregnant so we can take the necessary measures during your visit. When you care for your smile, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, and dental floss that have been approved by the American Dental Association.
Second, take very good care of your teeth if you have morning sickness. This is vital because the acid in your bile can severely erode the teeth and make them susceptible to cavities and other dental issues. So, make sure to rinse your mouth with water and wait 30 minutes to brush after you throw up.
