Important Dental Advice For Expectant Mothers

Aug 11, 2011   //   by Grandview Corners   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Important Dental Advice For Expectant Mothers

If you’re pregnant or planning on having a baby in the near future it is very important to visit Grandview Corners Dental & Wellness Centre, so we can partner with you to ensure a healthy and worry-free pregnancy. Put simply, healthy moms make healthy babies and excellent oral health is a key aspect of optimal overall health.

Minimizing exposure to X-rays and anaesthesia just makes sense for expectant moms – we’ll work with you to ensure that any outstanding dental X-rays and dental treatments are completed prior to pregnancy so that you don’t have to factor in appointments or dental emergencies.

Preventative dentistry visits can also provide a health benefit prior to and throughout your pregnancy.   Research indicates that over 40% of women within reproductive age have some form of gum disease.   Gum disease is a bacterial infection that saps your vitality and the ability of your body to care and nurture for your growing baby.   What is more, studies reveal that there is close correlation between pre-term births, low birth weights and gum disease!

Maintaining excellent oral health is also important for new moms – routine cleanings reduce the risk of passing on harmful oral bacteria to your new born through saliva exchange from kissing or testing baby’s food. Oral bacteria can cause harm even before your baby’s teeth break through the gums.

At Grandview Corners Dental we celebrate our patient’s lives and seek to support families at every stage – providing educational information and proactively managing oral health for expectant and new mothers is just one way we show our commitment!

If you are pregnant or planning on having a baby in the near future, allow us to help protect you and your baby from the dangers of oral bacteria and gum disease.   Contact us to book a personalized hygiene program today!
