Its important to be mouth healthy for life. Our mouth
is the gateway to our body’s overall health. During
pregnancy, your oral health is important for both
yours & your baby. Regular Dental check up & cleaning
during pregnancy is beneficial to prevent any gum
problem or what is commonly called as
‘pregnancy gingivitis’. This is caused by increase
accumulation of plaque because of the increased
hormone levels. According to the ADA, its the
plaque not your hormone that causes it.The gums may
bleed easily when brushing your teeth and at times swollen.
It’s very important to maintain good health, good
oral hygiene and to keep a balance diet.
