It’s no secret that pregnancy brings a lot of change to a woman’s life. Getting used to the change in hormones, eating habits, and shape of your body is all part of the journey.
Now that you’re pregnant, you may have an influx of new concerns and worries that you didn’t have to think about before! One of these concerns could be about the safety of dentist visits. Our team at Holly House is here to help you navigate your visit with us whilst you’re pregnant.
Attending Your Checkups
Visiting the dentist whilst pregnant is not only safe, but it’s also more important than ever to do so! Attending your checkups allows you to maintain healthy gums and teeth and prevent common dental problems. The last thing you need when you’re pregnant is to have any unnecessary stress.
Did you know that the rise in hormones caused by pregnancy can temporarily loosen the tissue surrounding the teeth? This sounds alarming but it usually doesn’t result in tooth loss so don’t worry. It’s important to chat to your dentist about these concerns so they can offer their expert advice.
Pregnancy hormones can also increase your risk of periodontal disease, so it’s more important than ever for you to keep up with your oral hygiene and visit your dentist. Periodontal disease, or commonly known as gum disease, can be prevented by proper oral hygiene. This includes: brushing twice a day, using mouthwash, and flossing.
