Pregnancy & Oral Health

By Dr Jess

Mythbusters

“My baby stole all the calcium from my teeth” – MYTH

Enamel and dentine are not a source of calcium for the developing baby. What does commonly happen though is that having a baby can suddenly make you VERY BUSY with less time to take care of yourself in terms of oral hygiene and diet. This can cause an increase in decay coincident with pregnancy and birth. Have a chat to Dr Jess and Dr Henry about how you can maintain your oral health through pregnancy.

 

 

“I can’t go to the dentist because I am pregnant” - MYTH

Most preventative and routine dental procedures are completely safe to undertake during pregnancy. If you have a dental emergency, like a toothache, while you are pregnant there may even be a greater risk to you and your baby if pain and infection are left untreated. So please, give us a call and we are happy to assess and discuss your individual dental needs during pregnancy.

 

 

Morning Sickness

Nothing is worse than that terrible taste in your mouth that goes with nausea, reflux and vomiting but PLEASE DON’T BRUSH for 30 minutes after being sick! The acids from your stomach will have softened the enamel and if you brush immediately, you will brush away the surface of your teeth. Instead rinse your mouth well with water or milk and try a piece of sugar-free gum.
