The Importance of Teeth Care While Pregnant

Something as simple as a thorough teeth care cleaning may reduce premature birth rates. Studies show that gum disease can cause babies to be born too soon and too small. Babies born too early are at a significant risk of developing serious and lasting health problems. Baby Your Baby recommends that all pregnant women should get their teeth cleaned during the second trimester of their pregnancy.

Taking care of your mouth while you are pregnant is important for you and your baby. Changes to your body, when you are pregnant, can make your gums sore or puffy and can make them bleed. This problem is called gingivitis. If gingivitis is not treated, it may lead to more serious gum disease which can lead to tooth loss.
