Take care of your teeth during and after pregnancy — you and your baby deserve it!
You may have heard that tooth loss or damage during pregnancy is inevitable. Well, “Dr. Tiff” and the Polish Dental Center team are here to dispel that myth.
It’s true that the rise in hormone levels during pregnancy can cause your gums to swell, bleed and trap food, causing problems with your teeth. But with supplemental care on top of routine dental maintenance, you can reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
And once you’ve delivered your happy and healthy baby, one or more quick cosmetic fixes may be all you need to boost your self-esteem. You can now focus on the joys and challenges of motherhood-not your teeth.
Here are some typical treatments “Dr. Tiff”, as your Lifestyle Maternity Dentist, may recommend for you depending on your personal needs —
To protect your health and the health of your unborn child, you need to take good care of your gums. But if a problem does arise, we can help you nip it in the bud with the appropriate form of periodontal therapy.
Antibiotic rinses are an effective way to reverse gum disease and allow your gums to heal. Depending on your needs, “Dr. Tiff” can prescribe a treatment that is stronger and more effective than typical over the counter mouthwashes.
When you’re pregnant, it’s important to take vitamin supplements to maintain the health of you and your baby. Vitamin D is especially important for your teeth. “Dr. Tiff”, as your Lifestyle Maternity Dentist, can recommend the best combination of vitamin supplements for you.
