Hormones in the body during pregnancy cause swelling, bleeding gums, cavities etc. Good oral hygiene through proper organic oral care methods helps in avoiding infections affecting the health of your baby.
Studies have increasingly shown that dental care is also an important factor for ensuring the health of your baby. It is advisable to get dental checkups both before and during pregnancy. During pregnancy, hormonal changes in the body cause the gums to swell and bleed leading to problems such as gingivitis and plaque. This in turn affects the health of the baby and causes precocious birth and other complications. Therefore, it is essential to have regular dental checkups and avoid oral problems along with maintaining a healthy diet.
What about regular dental work?
Dental work such as cavity filling may be continued but it is best to complete these within the second trimester as first and third trimester are crucial for the baby’s growth. Although X-rays have been proven to have no effect on the baby, it is best to avoid these. Dental procedures are only advisable in case of emergencies.
It is important to inform your dentist of the medication you are taking during pregnancy as the dental plan will have to be according to that. Although mild anesthesia does not affect the baby, it is important to be in a comfortable position and avoid stress as much as possible. Long periods of lying in uncomfortable postures can contribute to this stress so avoiding any complicated procedure is advisable.

Prevention is always better than cure and, where the future well-being of a child is concerned, it is best to take no risks. Taking good dental care is but a step in the process but as necessary as good nutrition and well-being of the mother. To avoid complications while pregnant, it is best to care of one’s own body as one would do for a child. After all, what is more joyous than a happy healthy child?
