Preventive care during pregnancy

Prevention for mother and baby

Pregnancy changes a woman’s body – also her mouth. Pregnancy hormones increase the risk of gingivitis. Cravings for sweet and sour foods present an added caries risk because the bacteria get more nutrients than with your normal diet. Your Dentists in Haslach recommend regular dental checkups every two to three months as well as a professional deep-cleaning to prevent gingivitis, or to spot it early and treat it before it can do any harm. The application of a protective fluoride varnish protects your teeth from acid attacks during vomiting, a frequent complaint in early pregnancy. Protect your dental health during pregnancy and make sure you and your unborn child are well.
