Join Us to Learn More About the Importance of Oral Health and a Healthy Pregnancy
During pregnancy, increased hormone levels can affect the way your body reacts to plaque that builds up on your teeth, causing redness, swelling and even bleeding gums which is commonly known as pregnancy gingivitis. (Be warned, gum disease has been linked to premature babies and low birthweight babies!)
The American Dental Association, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics all encourage women to get dental care while pregnant as pregnancy represents a crucial time in a woman’s life and maintaining oral health is directly related to good overall health for both the mother and the baby.
Did you know that being pregnant puts you at higher risk for tooth decay, gum disease (also known as “pregnancy gingivitis”), and oral growths called “pregnancy tumors?” These conditions are treatable and we will explain how to recognize each of these conditions during our webinar on Tuesday, January 15th at 1:30 pm CST and how they are treated.
