Congratulations! It is very important to maintain your own health for yourself and your baby. Hormones during this time can lead to an increased risk of gum inflammation. Gum disease (periodontitis) may place you at higher risk for delivering preterm and/or low-birth-weight infant. Please contact us to schedule your routine preventative care with on of our hygienists. We would love to talk to you about how to care for your mouth and your child’s when they arrive.
