Alongside appetite and hormonal changes during pregnancy, there are also several other conditions that can have a significant effect on your dental health while pregnant. Similarly, oral conditions such as periodontal disease can increase the risk of pregnancy related conditions such as pre-eclampsia.
Regular brushing, flossing, maintaining a balanced diet and also visiting the dentist will help in preventing any dental problems that may appear throughout the duration of pregnancy.
Maternal Dental Care at the Neem Tree
We are a family-run practice and we are here for you and your family at every step of the way.
We recommend that, whenever possible, a full dental check-up is carried out prior to becoming pregnant in order to complete any outstanding dental treatment as required. Although carrying out dental treatment is possible during pregnancy, it is best avoided, especially in the first and third trimesters.
