Dental care is safe during pregnancy. It is essential to you and your growing baby’s health. This is because those surging hormones that are causing such a dramatic transformation in your body can also put you at increased risk in developing oral health issues that can affect the health of your precious baby developing inside you.
One key potential result of increased hormones is gum disease, if left untreated, can turn into periodontal diseases. Some other dental issues that arise during pregnancy include erosion of tooth enamel caused by morning sickness; dry mouth, which can cause a number of dental issues; and pregnancy granuloma.
With careful planning and clear communication, Dr. Viral can watch over your optimal oral health throughout your pregnancy. The ideal time to visit Dr. Viral’s Dental Avenue is just before you start trying to get pregnant. This way we can provide you with a professional cleaning and treat any issues such as untreated tooth decay, signs of infections or tooth traumas. We will also examine your gums to get a baseline reading, making it easy to track and treat any changes caused by pregnancy hormones.
