Pregnancy is a unique time in a woman’s life, and the physiological changes taking place can have a significant impact on your oral health. In this week’s blog, your New Farm dentist discusses the importance of having good oral health during pregnancy, for yourself and your baby. You may have heard the old wives’ tale about losing a tooth for every child. While in itself, this is a myth, pregnancy can put you at higher risk of certain dental problems, like decay, gum disease, and dental erosion. Different eating patterns, morning sickness, and changes in hormones and salivary flow can all have an impact on your dental health, so it’s important to see your New Farm dentist early in your pregnancy to help manage any changes. Your oral health can also have an impact on your baby. Recent research shows that there is a link between periodontal disease and adverse pregnancy outcomes such as premature delivery and low birth weight. Your own oral condition can also impact on your child’s, because it is largely the parents’ oral flora that determines the bacteria, friendly or unfriendly, that colonise the child’s mouth. Having good oral hygiene is paramount before, during and after your pregnancy, so it may be a good time to schedule an appointment with your New Farm dentist and hygienist, to make sure that your mouth is in good condition. Evidence shows that dental care is safe and effective during pregnancy, so call your New Farm dentist today to arrange your check-up.

Seek medical help if injury or concussion is suspected.
