Jefferson Dental Care is proud to serve a wide variety of dental patients in our office. We are honored to walk alongside you through the many ages and stages of your life. If you are about to be pregnant, or are pregnant, congratulations! Having a baby is such a wonderful time of life. It’s exciting and scary all at the same time. We’d like to remind you to keep in mind your dental health during this time as well.
Before You Get Pregnant
If you’re ready to start trying to get pregnant, book a dental appointment right away. Many changes to your health are about to happen as soon as you get pregnant, and some may relate to your oral health. It’s valuable for us to examine, clean and treat any oral health issues in advance of your pregnancy. This appointment also serves as a way to measure any sudden dental issues that may arise when you become pregnant.
While You Are Pregnant
Firstly, let us know you’re pregnant when you come to your appointment. Almost all regular dental procedures can be performed while you are pregnant, but we need to know in case you require special care, or if there are some that you should wait for until you have your baby. In addition, let us know if you are taking any additional medications or supplements. Pregnancy can cause hormonal changes that can lead to periodontal disease or gingivitis. Always pay attention to any changes in your gums and let us know if you experience any changes, so we can treat you as soon as possible.
Jefferson Dental Care would like to remind you to maintain good oral hygiene before and during your pregnancy. Book your appointment with us today.
