Pregnancy and Dental Health

Q: Is it important to have a dental appointment during pregnancy?

A: The hormones in your body during pregnancy can cause some changes to your health, including your oral condition. For this reason, it is certainly advisable for you to book an appointment with an Instore Dental dentist during your pregnancy in order for your teeth, gums, and general oral health to be assessed.

Q: I have heard that pregnant women experience more problems with the build-up of plaque than usual. Is this true?

A: It is true that plaque build-up occurs to a greater extent in pregnant women. This increased amount of plaque inside the mouth makes pregnant women far more susceptible to gum disease than they are normally, and so it is important to brush and floss carefully, as well as to seek an appointment with your dentist in order to have an assessment.

Q: What do I need to do at my appointment?

A: All you will need to do when you visit the dentist at Instore Dental is to simply let them know that you are pregnant. Once they are aware of your situation, they will be able to keep this in mind whilst performing your assessment and also for making any recommendations on future treatment.
