Pregnancy And Oral Health In Yuma

Pregnancy is a happy time for most women. But even as you anticipate bringing new life into the world, it’s important to be aware that pregnancy can bring certain dental health risks. We can help you with them at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ.

Before you press the alarm button, let us clarify: being pregnant does not automatically mean your dental health will be at risk. But more than ever, you should brush and floss your teeth without fail, and see us for a checkup.

There is a link between gum disease in pregnant women, and babies being born prematurely with a low birth rate. Premature birth puts babies at risk for many conditions, including cerebral palsy and poor eyesight.

The good news? You are less likely to experience these issues if you enter pregnancy already having good dental health.

  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride
  • Floss thoroughly
  • Have regular dental checkups

If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, be sure to tell us at your next appointment. We may want to take certain precautions, like delaying your next round of x-rays.

There’s a lot to learn about when you’re expecting, and that includes your dental health! At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ we have helped women in Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton. Services include general and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today!
