During pregnancy, are you taking the time out of your busy life to give your oral health the time and care it deserves? The changes going on in your body, good and bad alike, are the result of hormones. You should be aware of these changes and what they can mean for your oral health.
Many pregnant women experience swelling gums. This leads to a condition that is commonly referred to as pregnancy gingivitis. If you find your gums swelling or bleeding more than normal, all is not lost! Be proactive with your dental hygiene and your oral health care. Brush and floss your teeth daily and visit Chalfont Dentistry at least twice a year. Our dentist may recommend that you have professional dental cleanings and exams more frequently until your baby is born.
Oral Health Care While Pregnant
Make sure that Dr. Sindhu Gundabathula knows that you are pregnant as soon as you know. Our dentist can adjust any dental treatments or dental medications that you need while you are pregnant as needed. In addition, certain procedures may be postponed until after your baby is born to avoid unnecessary risks.
Seeing your dentist for regular cleanings and dental X-rays is safe when you are expecting. In fact, we encourage this as part of the path to making your pregnancy a safe and healthy one.
Our dental team in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, is ready to help you maintain and improve your oral health while you’re expecting. Please contact our dental office at 215-660-3636 today to learn more and to schedule a visit.
