Description

It is highly recommended to continue preventive oral healthcare while pregnant with appointments every six months. The increases in hormone levels that occur during pregnancy can cause the gums to swell, bleed and potentially trap food in the gums which can lead to irritation. Recent studies have linked oral infections such as gum disease to preterm labor or low birth rates. Therefore, it is suggested to continue regular dental checkups. Updated: 04.22.18
