Pregnancy, especially for first time mothers, brings a lot of new information your way about your life, your body and beyond. One important aspect of your body that shouldn’t be forgotten during pregnancy is your dental health! Read these three tips below to help you maintain your beautiful smile while pregnant.
1. Make A Dentist Appointment
Visiting your dentist early on in your pregnancy can help answer a lot of questions and educate you further on particular, individualized dental requirements and common teeth issues that that can take place during pregnancy.
2. Be Extra Diligent With Dental Care
Keeping up with regular brushing and flossing is the most important thing you can do in maintaining dental health. Also, being careful with changes to diet during pregnancy and late-night cravings is important in keeping teeth healthy.
3. Plan Ahead For Dental Work
Surgeries and cosmetic procedures during pregnancy are warned against. The use of Novocain and certain antibiotics can negatively affect expectant mothers, so make sure that you have these procedures done prior to getting pregnant.
