Oral Health During Pregnancy

Dallas dental exam during pregnancy

This post from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas is for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.

Carrying a precious baby can not only consume your time; it can divert your attention from other things, as well. As valued as your little bundle of joy will be, don’t forget your needs and your vitality during these critical months.

It’s vital to understand that the changes your body experiences during pregnancy also impact dental health. Changes in your hormonal balance are needed for growing a new life, but they can also compromise your oral health during pregnancy.

Your gums are especially susceptible. Poor gum health can even affect your unborn child. The American Dental Association has conducted studies that show a slightly increased risk of low birth weight and pre-term infants in mothers with gum disease.

In order to keep your smile healthy, it is recommended you have a thorough checkup before you are pregnant. If you are already pregnant but haven’t visited a dentist in a while, please give us a call at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas. We offer complete general dentistry services. Patients from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood also some to us for cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
