The simple answer is “YES!” Your oral health is very important to your overall health, and this still holds true with pregnancy. In fact, there are some problems that can worsen due to the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy. A healthy mouth will help keep both you and your unborn baby as healthy as possible. It is always a good idea to stay ahead of problems whether you are pregnant or not. Make sure to tell your dentist that you are pregnant, or trying to get pregnant. The dental team will want to know so they can be sure to protect your unborn baby.
