Before you consider getting pregnant, it may be wise to schedule an appointment with your dentist. Your dentist can give your teeth a professional cleaning as well as check on the condition of your gums. If there are any problems, your dentist will be able to address them right away.
During your first trimester, you may not notice any changes to your dental health, but don’t slack off on doing the essentials. You should be brushing, flossing and rinsing with a fluoride mouthwash daily.
Nearly 10% of pregnant women will experience swelling in their gums or loose teeth. Talk with your dentist about how you can keep your teeth and gums healthy during the remainder of your pregnancy.
