Pregnancy & Dental Care - What you should know

Once a woman finds out that she's pregnant all these health facts and concerns are bombarded at her to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Often times her oral health gets pushed aside or ignored. Remember ladies: your oral health effects not just you but your baby during your pregnancy!!

If you are trying to get pregnant...

Make a dental appointment! (Sounds crazy but hear us out!) By seeing your dentist for a routine exam he or she can detect any serious dental problems or infections that should be taken care of before you become pregnant. Untreated tooth and/or gum problems can lead to an increased risk of giving birth to a preterm, low-birth-weight baby!

Congratulations! You're Expecting!

A lot of changes are going to be happening physically and emotionally for you. Here's what you can expect to happen to your gums:

More occurrences of gingivitis!! The hormonal changes that your body undergoes during pregnancy do effect your gums. Some women find that they are experiencing inflamed, bleeding and sore gums associated with gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis will lead to a more serious condition call periodontitis and result in tooth loss.

Good oral habits to keep in mind when pregnant...
- Start (or continue) to brush, floss, & use an antiseptic mouthwash regularly.
- Keep up with all routine dental check-ups.
- If you need to have a dental procedure, get a clearance from your gynecologist.
- When you feel a pregnancy craving coming on try to opt for the healthier snacks. If you can't and you just have to have something with chocolate, floss and brush your teeth immediately after.
- If you are suffering from the dreaded morning sickness and are vomiting pretty regularly, minimize enamel erosion from your stomach acid by frequently rinsing your mouth with water.

Keep up with these oral habits and the ones recommended by your dentist and you should have healthy teeth not just during your pregnancy but for the rest of your life!

Have a dental emergency?  No need to spend the weekend in pain.  Give us a call and we'll get you in!

Q: My dentist says that if I don't get a root canal on a tooth, it will need to be pulled. Aren't root canals painful?

A: Root canals have gotten a bad rep from movies and war stories. In fact, with modern dental techniques, root canals can be done in one appointment and with little to no discomfort.  

Sometimes when there is a deep cavity in a tooth, the tooth is severely broken, or has been traumatized; the nerve or "pulp" of the tooth is affected.  When this happens, not only the tooth itself, but also the surrounding tissues are in danger of infection. This may, if it hasn't already, lead to a very painful abscess and send you running to the nearest dentist.  To treat this problem, the source needs to be removed.  In this case, the source of the problem is the pulp of the tooth which can be removed in one of 2 ways; the dentist can extract the tooth or treat the tooth with a root canal.  A root canal treatment is a very common procedure in the dental office.  It involves the use of very small instruments and solutions which clean and disinfect the pulp and prepare the tooth for a permanent filling. 

When you're in a lot of pain resulting from an infected tooth, it's easy to opt for the "quick fix" and have the tooth pulled. Remember however, there are no magic pills that can grow your tooth back, and with root canal therapy, we can preserve your tooth for years to come!
