Oral Care & My Pregnancy

Congratulations and best wishes on your pregnancy. During this time, there are many things to think of in preparing your body and life for a new addition. It is easy to forget about your oral health, but it is critical and uniquely affected by your pregnancy.

Healthy Habits


With hormone changes in your body, some dental concerns become even worse. Once you find out you are pregnant, contact your dentist to let them know your due date. Schedule a routine visit during that time to ensure your teeth remain cared for during this critical time. In most cases, routine dental checks are safe during pregnancy.

If you suffer from morning sickness, we suggest you rinse with a teaspoon of baking soda and water mixture.
