What Pregnancy Means for Your Oral Health [video]

If you’re expecting, you’re probably being extra careful to take good care of your body. But have you considered how pregnancy affects oral health?

Your baby’s teeth begin forming in utero, so be sure to get plenty of bone- and teeth-building calcium. It’s also important to load up on folic acid, which promotes gum health. Hormones make you susceptible to gum problems, a condition called “pregnancy gingivitis.”

Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about pregnancy and oral health. And call Silver Leaf Dentistry of Longmont, CO at 720-504-2539 to schedule a cleaning and exam. Or request an appointment online.
