DENTAL HEALTH IN PREGNANCY

With pregnancy, the teeth and surrounding tissues become prone to damage. Acidity in saliva increases with pregnancy. Tooth surfaces that are constantly exposed to the acid environment wear out. This wear both paves the way for bruises and creates sensitivity. In addition, with the effect of increasing hormones, swelling occurs in the gums and bleeding may occur even in minor traumas.

In order for the pregnant woman not to have dental problems, she should have a dental scan before pregnancy.

Attention should be paid to daily calcium intake.

Brush the teeth with a soft-tipped toothbrush  and floss at least twice a day.

Teeth cleaning should be repeated when nausea, vomiting and reflux occur.

If treatment is required, treatment can be performed after the 12th week.

Stay healthy.
