Maven Dental Group: Oral Health Care During Pregnancy

by Jemma (follow)
Oral health is extremely important for you and your baby during pregnancy.

While there is a lot happening throughout your pregnancy, it is especially important to maintain excellent oral health during this time.

When visiting your dentist for your regular 6 monthly checkups, be sure to inform them that you're pregnant. With Maven Dental practices in Brunswick, South Yarra and the CBD, their friendly professionals can address any concerns you have and provide additional recommendations to help keep your oral health in excellent condition.

Keep an eye out for the following dental health issues that may arise:

Tooth Decay:

As with many mums-to-be, morning sickness is often experienced, which increases the acid levels in your mouth.

Do not brush your teeth straight away as brushing too soon can result in the erosion of tooth enamel. Alternatively, consider rinsing your mouth with plain water, or possibly adding a few drops of mouthwash into the water if you prefer.

Pregnancy Gingivitis:

Pregnancy gingivitis sees the gums bleed easily and become sore, swollen and red. This is commonly caused by increased hormone levels or inadequate oral hygiene.

With professional treatment and good oral hygiene care at home, gingivitis is generally reversible and subsides after birth.

Pregnancy Tumours:

The increase in blood flow and hormone levels during pregnancy can cause tumours to form on the gums.

These tumours are normally benign and usually subside by themselves, but in some cases may have to be removed.

Haven't booked your next checkup? Contact your nearest practice in Brunswick, South Yarra or the CBD to arrange an appointment today.
