How is Your Oral Health and Pregnancy Connected?

You may know that being pregnant is extremely exciting. You probably also know that there are several things you’ll need to do to get ready for your new arrival. Still, would you surprised to learn that there are a few things you should do to protect yourself while you’re pregnant?

As you may know, your body will change when you’re pregnant. For instance, you’ll experience higher progesterone levels. While this isn’t a serious issue, it can lead to a few issues you’ll need to know about. For example, did you know that pregnant women should be more cautious of gum disease than others are? This is because increased progesterone levels will actually let gum disease become more serious much more quickly.

Still, if our team spots the signs of gum disease, there are several things we can do to help you reverse the issue. Of course, we’ll also help you avoid gum disease by cleaning your teeth thoroughly, but you can usually avoid gum disease from home by brushing and flossing.

If you’d like to learn more about the care you can receive from us, or are interested in hearing more on keeping your teeth healthy while you’re pregnant in Tucson, Arizona, please don’t hesitate to give Desert Dental Group a call at (520) 201-1717.
