We all know that your oral health has a direct connection to your overall health. Caring for your teeth and gums while pregnant is especially important
. Good dental habits can help prevent oral problems during pregnancy.
Below are some do’s and don’ts that the team at Foster Dental Care
put together for expectant moms.
Continue to brush twice and floss at least once daily
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
