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.

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
