Can I still get dental treatment when I’m pregnant? Yes!!

Pregnancy is a beautiful time, growing another human life is a gift and one that should be cherished. Don’t worry, your pregnancy doesn’t need to be at the cost of your oral hygiene, it is still perfectly safe to visit the dentist when you are pregnant, and it is actually encouraged.

During pregnancy there are so many changes in your body and some of these changes can impact on your teeth. There is a saying that a mother loses a tooth for every child she has, but with a visit to Advanced Dental Care Clinic in Oxenford, on the Gold Coast we can come up with a dental plan to ensure your teeth remain strong and healthy.

Why is it important to visit the dentist during your pregnancy?

Visiting the dentist is a great way to identify the early stages of gum disease. Gum disease if left to worsen can lead to premature labour and low birth weight. The signs of gum disease include; inflamed gums, a more reddish colour gum, bad breath and bleeding.

When we have children, we pass down our eyes, nose and a variety of features, but a visit to the dentist will ensure that you don’t pass along your decay-causing bacteria. When unborn babies are subject to decay-causing bacteria they might be more susceptible to tooth decay in their milk teeth.

 What can you do to assist with your oral hygiene

  • When you are pregnant it is important to eat healthy and take a pregnancy multi-vitamin. Your baby will be taking the nutrients they need to grow and develop, so make sure there is plenty left for you.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day for the recommended 2 – 3 minutes time period.
  • If you aren’t flossing, you are missing 40% of your tooth’s surface.
  • Keep your soft drink intake to a minimum and instead drink plenty of water.
