Dental Care During Pregnancy. What you need to know


Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful experiences in a woman’s life, but numerous changes in the body accompany it. The oral cavity is no exception. Pregnant women are prone to many oral health problems, such as gum disease, tooth decay, and pregnancy tumors. Therefore, good dental care is essential during pregnancy. Here’s what you need to know about oral care during pregnancy.

Visit your dentist regularly

Regular checkups and cleanings with your dentist during pregnancy are essential for your dental and overall health. Your dentist will also help you manage any dental problems during pregnancy, and a dental visit can help identify and prevent oral health problems before they get worse. At EgoDent, we carefully treat dental issues during pregnancy so you do not expose yourself to risks or more severe health problems.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Good oral hygiene is essential to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Brush your teeth twice daily, floss daily, and use mouthwash to keep your mouth clean and fresh. Here’s how to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, some of the most common dental problems during pregnancy.

Watch Your Diet

Healthy eating habits are essential for dental care during pregnancy. A balanced diet that includes calcium, vitamin D, and phosphorus is necessary for strong teeth and bones. Avoid sugary foods and drinks, as they can cause tooth decay and harm overall health. A healthy and balanced diet will not only help you with oral health but will also help you feel more energetic and vital during pregnancy.

Communicate with Your Dentist

Tell your dentist about your pregnancy and share any concerns you may have. Your dentist will advise you about dental treatments and safe medications during pregnancy. For example, dental X-rays are usually safe during pregnancy, but the dentist will place a lead apron over your abdomen to protect the developing baby. At EgoDent, our dentists are ready to take good care of you and help you keep healthy and beautiful teeth during pregnancy.

Address Any Dental Issues Promptly

It is essential to address any dental issues that arise promptly. Delay in treatment or neglecting dental problems may increase the risk of infection, pain, and other complications during pregnancy. Therefore, update your dentist regarding any pain or discomfort produced by dental issues so they can offer the appropriate treatment.

In conclusion, dental care during pregnancy is crucial for you and your baby’s overall health. Following our tips, you can maintain a healthy smile throughout your pregnancy.
