Post Pregnancy Dental Care - What You Need To Know

When a woman is pregnant, there's a lot of things that change in her body. Often times, special care needs to be taken to accommodate these changes, ensuring good health for both mother and baby.

Pregnancy dental care is no different - pregnancy causes a vast array of physiological changes in the human body, it can also have a negative impact on your teeth.

There are certain dental problems that occur during pregnancy, such as gingivitis and granulomas, both causing major issues in the mouth.

Pregnancy-related dental problems are usually caused by a higher concentration of hormones in the mother's body; around 40% of expectant mothers will experience some sort of dental problem during their pregnancy.

Fortunately, if you have maintained a good oral hygiene routine, most of these problems will reduce in severity or disappear completely after birth. However, they can cause discomfort and may even lead to more serious health problems in the future if left untreated.

It is vital to maintain a good oral hygiene routine both before, during and after pregnancy.

Looking after a new-born baby is stressful, time-consuming and very messy. Therefore, it is very important that you don't forget to take care of yourself and your own dental health.
