Tips On Maintaining Good Oral Health During Pregnancy

Pregnant women who have gum disease may be seven times more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too small.

See our handy hints and tips for maintaining healthy gums during your pregnancy.

  • Brush twice a day and floss once a day.
  • Use an antibacterial mouth rinse if recommended by your dentist/hygienist.
  • Visit your dentist/hygienist regularly so that any gingivitis can be treated straight away. 
  • Inform your dentist/hygienist if you are experiencing severe morning sickness, as this may well erode your teeth enamel.
  • Pregnant women usually complain about dry mouth or xerostoma. You can      address your dry mouth by drinking lots of water or sucking on sugarless sweets that stimulate saliva secretion. 
  • On the other hand, you may produce too much saliva. This is a condition that  happens during the early stages of pregnancy. It goes away after the end of the first trimester. Overproduction of saliva may be associated with nausea.
  • Eat a balanced diet, including protein, calcium and vitamins C, A, and D. 
  • Should you need routine dental treatment, discuss the timing of this with your  dentist.  It is recommended that the second trimester is the most ideal time to get  routine dental treatment.
