Pregnancy is a time of great joy and excitement for women. The baby bump is a symbol of new life and motherhood. But did you know that pregnancy can also cause some serious problems for your oral health.

During pregnancy, hormones such as progesterone and estrogen play a role in regulating tooth development. This means that pregnant women are at greater risk of developing dental issues such as gum disease and tooth decay.

Tooth decay during pregnancy is common because of changes in saliva flow and increased levels of bacteria in the mouth. If left untreated, these conditions can result in painful abscesses or even tooth loss.

However, there are ways to prevent tooth decay during pregnancy. First, brush twice daily using fluoride toothpaste and floss regularly. Second, eat foods rich in calcium and vitamin D to strengthen bones and teeth. Third, drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated.

When it comes to treating periodontal (gum) infections, antibiotics are often used. While this may be effective in many cases, some people experience side effects from antibiotic use. In fact, according to the American Academy of Periodontology, up to 40 percent of patients who take antibiotics for an infection develop diarrhea.

 

Dental Hygiene

What if we told you that the average person spends only two minutes cleaning their teeth? That would certainly make it difficult to imagine just how much time we spend at work each day doing things we really don’t want to do.

Your smile is one of the first things someone notices about you. If your teeth aren’t clean and looking great, then no matter what else you wear, you won’t feel comfortable.

The truth is, most of us never think about how dirty our teeth actually get until we start having problems. As soon as we notice something unusual happening, we usually try to figure it out ourselves, but the problem isn’t always obvious. Some common signs that you need professional help with your teeth include:

Bleeding gums

Gum recession

Bad breath

Loose or infected teeth

Painful chewing

Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth

If any of these symptoms persist, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist right away. And even if you haven’t noticed anything yet, there’s still plenty you can do to keep your mouth healthy and beautiful. Here are some tips to help you keep your pearly whites clean and bright.

Brush regularly. It sounds basic but brushing twice a day helps remove plaque and food particles from your teeth. You can brush with either a manual toothbrush or electric toothbrush, but whichever type you choose, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Floss daily. Flossing removes leftover food particles and bacteria from between your teeth. When combined with regular brushing, this step helps prevent gum disease and cavities. Make sure you floss before bed every night, too. Not only does it freshen up your breath, but it keeps your teeth cleaner longer than you might expect.

Use mouthwash. Mouthwashes contain chemicals that kill germs and bad bacteria, which may reduce the risk of developing gum disease. Choose a product containing fluoride or chlorhexidine (an antiseptic). Avoid alcohol-based products because they can dry out your mouth.
