Expecting a baby is an exciting time, filled with many emotions, anticipations, and plenty of things to organise and appointments to attend. During pregnancy it is, of course, vital to focus on your health, not just for the development of your baby but also because of the many changes your body will undergo.
Hormone changes during pregnancy can cause the gums to bleed more than they would normally because they will react to plaque in an exaggerated way. This is why pregnant woman are more susceptible to gum disease – or gingivitis – and left untreated this can cause periodontitis, a severe condition that can lead to tooth loss.
It is important to ensure that plaque is removed thoroughly with an effective home regime and regular appointments with the hygienist. You should also attend regular check ups with the dentist to ensure that everything is healthy and as it should be. Here at the Harley Street Dental Group we will work with you to ensure your teeth and gums remain as healthy as possible by giving you plenty of advice on how you can care for them at home and through your appointments with us.
Once your baby is born we will also give you plenty of advice on how to care for his or her gums and teeth when they begin to appear. You’ll have so many things to think about when your child arrives so you can rely on us to provide the help you need.
If you’re expecting a baby why not make an appointment with the Harley Street Dental Group where one of our lovely hygienists will be able to check how you brush and give you advice and guidance. Just call 020 7636 5981 today and book an appointment with our friendly team.
