Dental Health During Pregnancy

Important things to remember about dental health during pregnancy:

  • Chronic oral infections such as periodontal disease may contribute to:
    • Preeclampsia
    • Preterm labor and delivery
    • Fetal growth restriction
  • Chronic gingivitis causes increases in bacterial products and inflammatory mediators that may affect placental function.
  • Routine dental procedures such as cleaning, scaling, polishing and local anesthesia are safe throughout pregnancy.
  • We recommend daily, at home dental care, including flossing, and to maintain (or initiate) your dental hygiene appointments every six months during your pregnancy.
