There are few things more joyous and surprisingly overwhelming than the journey you will take when you become pregnant. As you may have noticed, focusing on your oral health may start to feel like completely new territory, as opposed to the usual auto-pilot experience you have with dental care. Not to worry. The changes aren’t all that big. It just becomes ever more important that you are diligent, that you’re aware of the way this shift in your body can affect your smile, and that you realize you have the help you need when you need it most. Consider helpful tips!
Tip: Remember, Your Gums Are More Inflammation Prone Now
When you’re pregnant (and during other times of hormonal shifts), you become more prone to experience periodontal problems. Keep this in mind but do not become worried. Excellent home and professional care will safeguard your oral health.
Tip: Get Detail Oriented
When you’re pregnant, the best way to protect your oral health is to become detail oriented. This means paying attention to the little facets of what makes your dental care effective. When you brush as often as we suggest and the way we suggest (and the same goes for flossing), you use the products we suggest, and you come see us as frequently as we recommend, you offer your smile optimal protection. Ramp up your plaque removal and you can avoid preventable issues like decay and gingivitis.
