5 reasons to make a prenatal appointment with your dentist
- Pregnancy gingivitis: As you know, your body is going through major changes in order to create a little human being. Your hormone levels affect nearly every part of your body, including your mouth. Many women experience gum bleeding during pregnancy. Your dentist can help you to improve/preserve excellent gum health during your pregnancy and after.
- Morning sickness: One of the more difficult parts of pregnancy is morning sickness. Many women experience morning sickness at some point during their pregnancy. This can cause severe nausea and even vomiting. The contents of the stomach are very acidic, and when this acid touches your teeth, it can cause enamel breakdown and decay. Your dentist can suggest the best methods for protecting your enamel and preserving oral health.
