Whether you are trying to get pregnant or you are already pregnant, good dental care and hygiene is very important; regular cleaning and check-ups are essential for dental health.
I heard an expectant mother tell me that she had a horrible toothache
but couldn’t do anything about it because it isn’t safe to get dental care while you are pregnant. I didn’t know how to feel about this.
I was a notorious tooth-grinder as a child. Since I was a toddler, I was
constantly mashing my teeth together both during sleep and during the
daytime. Technically, this problem is called bruxism, and it does
deserve some attention.
While you are wrapped up in family plans, home renovations, and baby shower registries, it’s easy to forget about some simple concepts you’ve been following your whole life. Many women that become pregnant easily forget about dental hygiene.
If you’re pregnant, you are constantly thinking about a thousand things
at once. Your baby’s health is always your main concern, and many
decisions you make are centered solely on that.
Whether you are trying to get pregnant or you are already pregnant: Good dental hygiene is important and regular cleaning and check-ups are essential for dental health.
