At Legacy Family Dentistry, we understand that pregnancy can be a tough time for many women. We want your pregnancy to be as stress-free as possible, and we think that means keeping your mouth clean and healthy. Since we want you to keep solid oral health during your pregnancy, for your sake and for the baby’s sake, we’ve arranged the following list of tips you can use to keep your mouth pain-free.

-Keep a balanced diet to keep the enamel layer of your pearly whites strong and thwart tooth decay.

-Avoid consuming many sugary foods and sodas, which can cause tooth breakdown and gum disease, both of which can affect your child.

-Tell us about it if you are expecting, and we will adjust your care accordingly.

-To stay comfortable in our office, think about bringing a pillow and some headphones along with you.

-Maintain routine cleanings with our office, but forego other non-emergency oral work until after the pregnancy.

-As always, brush your chompers twice daily and floss your chompers at least once per day.
