Take a few tips to heart and schedule a visit with us ASAP!
Tip #1: Let Us Know Right Away!
The best first step when you’re pregnant as far as your smile is concerned? Let us know. By monitoring your oral health from the start of your pregnancy, we can ensure we keep your smile in good condition, rather than letting a problem begin. Remember that developing gingivitis becomes more likely when you’re pregnant, thanks to those hormonal fluctuations, so attention to detail is essential.
Tip #2: Don’t Stress, Just Buy New Products
Can’t stomach the way your toothpaste smells let alone attempt put it in your mouth? If you’re not liking your dental hygiene products, don’t worry. Since your senses are heightened, it’s just a matter of finding new flavors and scents that aren’t so potent, so you can get on with your usual dental hygiene.
Tip #3: Morning Sickness? Rinse, Rinse, Rinse.
You may be one of the lucky ones who doesn’t experience morning sickness! However, if not, just remember that your goal is to rinse your mouth out. Don’t worry about brushing immediately. After your teeth are exposed to acids, it is best to wait 30 minutes before you reach for a toothbrush. Rinsing with water: Now that will offer immediate oral health protection.
