Dental Health and Pregnancy: How To Stay Healthy During Pregnancy
by Dr. Michael Popp on Feb 27, 2015

Overview: Taking care of your teeth and dental health is always important, but it's even more crucial during pregnancy. In this blog we'll give you a few tips on how to stay healthy when pregnant.

Pregnancy is an important time to take care of yourself, and this includes looking after your dental health. Here are seven tips to help keep your teeth in top shape during this exciting time of your life.

 

  1. As always, make sure you brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
     
  2. Floss as often as possible.
     
  3. Keep your gums clean by using mouthwash and by brushing them gently.
     
  4. A well hydrated mouth is a healthy mouth, and without sufficient water you can't produce the saliva necessary to ward off bacteria. By drinking enough water you can keep your teeth in prime condition.
     
  5. By eating healthy you can ensure that your teeth and your body stay in good shape.
     
  6. Morning sickness and vomiting are very common during pregnancy and unfortunately this causes your teeth to become exposed to an excess amount of acid. To combat this, make sure your rinse your mouth out after being sick and if you can, use a fluoride mouthwash too.
     
  7. Keep attending regular dental appointments! By checking in with a health professional like Dr. Popp you can not only keep your teeth healthy, but you'll also be warned of any dental issues that may affect your child.


 

Bottom Line: With a baby on the way, keeping on top of your dental hygiene is even more important than ever. By following the tips above, you can make sure that your health isn't compromised during this sensitive time in your life. By looking after yourself, you're looking after your baby, and that's the best way to ensure your pregnancy is successful as possible.
