ORAL CARE AND PREGNANCY
During pregnancy, women's bodies undergo complex physiological changes that can adversely affect oral health.
Educating pregnant women about preventing dental caries is also critical. Evidence suggests that most infants and young children acquire caries-causing bacteria from their mother. Our practice will provide pregnant women with key information such as:
-The importance of oral hygiene and oral health care during pregnancy with safe and effective ways that is essential for mom and fetus.
-Advise women that delaying necessary treatment could result in risks to the mother and indirectly to the fetus.
-Performing comprehensive gingival and periodontal exams.
-Improving oral health
