Below are some do’s and don’ts that the team at Foster Dental Care put together for expectant moms.
Do: Continue to brush twice and floss at least once daily
Do: Schedule a dental visit for your 6-month cleaning during your first trimester. This way you can establish a dental plan for the rest of your pregnancy
