Baby on board!

It is essential to keep your whole body, including your teeth and mouth, in top condition while waiting for your little one to arrive.

Many people are surprised to learn that pregnant women are even more susceptible to common oral issues. The American Dental Association claims that pregnant women are at an increased risk for gingivitis, tooth decay, and even an overgrowth of oral tissues.

 

 

The CDC notes that women who have a lot of cavity-causing bacteria during pregnancy and after delivery have an increased risk of transmitting these bacteria to their infant’s mouth. Keeping up with oral hygiene during pregnancy will keep you and your baby healthy! Schedule your visit to Westwood Dental Esthetics today. Dr. Kiai and his team will thoroughly assess you and suggest any treatments to maintain oral health. Your teeth should be the last thing on your mind as you are getting ready for a baby on board!
