This message from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH is for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Carrying a precious child can not only consume your time, but your attention as well. Don’t forget your needs and your energy during these critical months.
It’s important to understand that the multitude of changes your body experiences during pregnancy influence the mouth. Changes in your hormonal balance are necessary for growing a new life, but they can also compromise your oral health during pregnancy.
Your gums are especially susceptible. In fact, the American Dental Association has conducted studies that reveal a slightly increased risk of low birth weight and pre-term infants in mothers with gum disease.
In order to keep your smile healthy, it is important to visit us before you are pregnant. We can check your teeth and gums and advise you if any changes to your dental hygiene routine are required.
At Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH we want all our patients to enjoy good dental health. And once your baby is born, remember we offer pediatric dentistry as well as family dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
