Dental Health in Pregnancy - Dental Tips from Beech House Family Dental Practice
At Beech House Dental we have been caring for the dental health of the whole family for many years. We have an excellent reputation as a caring and friendly dental practice offering modern treatments for every age group.
Mothers to be often ask us how they should ensure dental health during pregnancy and after the birth of their new babies, often they are concerned that dental treatment may cause harm to the growing baby.
Routine dental care — including brushing, flossing and professional cleaning — prevents periodontal (gum) disease, which is linked to an increased risk of low birth weights and premature birth.
One theory is that the low-grade infection and inflammation of the tissues surrounding the teeth set off an immune response that can hinder your baby’s growth and ultimately convince your body that the baby would be better off being born. Hormonal changes and increased blood volume soften gum tissue, giving bacteria easier access. Morning sickness can compound the problem, eroding enamel and hastening decay. (Swish with water after vomiting to rinse away stomach acids.)
It's very important therefore that pregnant women attend regularly throughout pregnancy and during the next year, though they may wish to postpone major or non urgent treatment until after the baby is born. The team of dentists and hygienists at Beech House are always happy to advise on the best approach for each individual patient, it's what we have built our excellent reputation on!
Beech House Dental is a friendly, long established family practice offering you and your family a comprehensive range of dental advice and treatment.
