Pregnancy and Dental Health

It is important to take care of oral and dental health during pregnancy. Common causes of dental health problems during pregnancy can include: gum problems, vomiting, and cravings for sugary foods and retching while brushing teeth. Pregnancy gingivitis occurs due to the increased level of hormones exaggeration and the way gums react to the irritants in plaque. There are evidence that, there is a link between gum disease and premature, underweight births. Dental problems during pregnancy can be prevented by regular brushing and flossing, eating a balanced diet especially foods rich in calcium, iron and Vitamin D and visiting dentist regularly. Also, it is to be taken care to visit the dentist during the fourth to sixth month of pregnancy to avoid any prenatal complications due to stresses associated with dental visits that can occur during first trimester and last trimester which is the most important stage of pregnancy.
