What to expect from your dentist when you're expecting

teeth health smile dentistIt is important to visit your dentist when you’re pregnant to control dental problems that are more likely to develop and advise on the best oral care routine.
Key takeaways:
– If you have morning sickness, don’t brush your teeth immediately after vomiting, as the acid weakens your tooth enamel. Rinse with water and brush your teeth 30 minutes afterward.
– If you have been craving sugary food your dentist can check your teeth for new cavities.
– Your dentist can check for early signs of gum disease, which can be triggered by pregnancy hormones.
“Research links gum disease with premature babies and low birth weight.”
