Are you growing a bun in your oven? If so, congratulations! Now, it’s important to remember that your smile is very vulnerable during pregnancy. So, please do all you can to keep it in tip-top shape. To help you do so, Dr. Jessie Hunter has some tips and recommendations for you.

First, make sure to visit your dentist at Allen Pediatric Dentistry every six months. This is important because it helps you prevent major dental issues and keep your oral health in tip-top shape. During your appointment, please tell our team you are pregnant. We also encourage you to tell us about any medications and vitamins you are taking as well as the dosages. Lastly, tell us about any medical advice your doctor has given you. All of these things can help us provide the best dental treatment possible.

Second, have a diligent oral hygiene routine. This means you need to brush twice a day and floss and rinse daily. Doing these things can help you keep your smile clean and pristine. It can also help you prevent pregnancy gingivitis, which is a serious dental issue that can cause premature birth.

To learn more about how to care for your smile while you’re pregnant in Allen, Texas, please call Allen Pediatric Dentistry at your earliest convenience. Our dental team will be more than happy to help you if you just call 972-727-0737!
