Thinking about having a baby? Think about your oral health!

  • Oral health is an important part of overall health.  That is true for both your and your baby.

  • You are less likely to have dental problems during pregnancy if you have a healthy mouth before pregnancy.

Make sure to see the dentist before you get pregnant.

  • This is the best time to get any needed dental work and ensure you have a healthy mouth before you get pregnant. 

  • Dental visits are more comfortable before pregnancy.

  • Tell the dentist you are trying to get pregnant and discuss how to maintain a healthy mouth during pregnancy.

  • Make sure to discuss seeing the dentist early in your pregnancy.
