Good Oral Health During Pregnancy

By: Smileway Dental

Being pregnant comes with many responsibilities and the way you care for your teeth is no exception. Although many women make it nine months with no dental discomfort, pregnancy can make some conditions worse or create new ones. For most women, routine dental visits are safe during pregnancy, but let your dental office know what month you are in when you make your appointment. Be sure to keep your dentist informed of any changes in your mouth such as swelling, redness or bleeding. Changes in hormones will lead to some gum problems and occasionally mobile teeth, therefore oral hygeine is of utmost importance during pregnancy.

7 tips for maintaining a healthy mouth during pregnancy:

  • Brush your teeth with fluoridated toothpaste twice a day.
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months, or more often if the bristles are frayed.
  • Do not share your toothbrush.
  • Floss between your teeth daily.
  • Rinse every night with an over the counter fluoridated, alcohol-free mouth rinse.
  • Drink water throughout the day, especially between meals and snacks.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Eat variety of healthy foods, such as fruits, vegetables, cereals, bread and other dairy products.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for a professional cleaning and check-up.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very clean👍👍. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
