Are you pregnant? If so, do not forget to keep your teeth safe. This includes continuing to follow an effective oral health care treatment plan, including brushing twice daily and flossing every day as well. If you neglect your oral health care during a pregnancy, numerous oral health issues can arise.

Poor oral hygiene during pregnancy can lead to an increased risk for ailments such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and can even increase your risk for a premature delivery. Furthermore, pregnancies increase your risk naturally for gum disease, so you must make sure that you’re always taking care of your teeth and gums whenever possible.

Beyond your own oral health care routine, visit your dentist for routine checkups and examinations. They can help you establish an effective treatment plan for yourself before, during, and after a pregnancy. Always make sure to tell your dentist about any prenatal vitamins and medications you may be taking.
