Baby Dental – Pregnancy and Dental Care

Friday, May. 10th 2024 11:18 AM

I will be having my first child in seven months. Before my pregnancy, I was having regular dental care. I am due for my dental cleaning in a few weeks. I made the appointment before becoming pregnant. My question is, do I still keep my dental appointment? I know a few friends who did not go to the dentist while pregnant. Is that normal?

Reply: It is great to hear that you are taking care of your dental health, and congratulations on your pregnancy! It is important to prioritize your dental care during pregnancy. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to maintain good oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that pregnant women continue to receive routine dental care and cleanings throughout their pregnancy.

However, it is essential to inform your dentist that you are pregnant. How far along are you so they can take necessary precautions and ensure your safety during the appointment? Additionally, if you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to discuss them with your dentist.

Skipping dental appointments during pregnancy can lead to dental problems affecting your and your baby’s health. Poor oral health during pregnancy has been linked to preterm birth and low birth weight. So, it is best to keep your dental appointment and maintain good oral hygiene at home by brushing twice daily and flossing daily.
