Dental health, also called oral health, is the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. When pregnant, dental health becomes an important part of your prenatal care.
Oral health is directly linked to the general health of your body. Dentists claim that there is a link between dental health and childbirth. Studies show that gum diseases trigger increased levels of biological compounds that induce labor.
Dental health is of prime importance during pregnancy. Brush teeth regularly, twice a day. Floss once a day to help get rid of any remains of food particles left after brushing. And more importantly, eat a balanced, nutritious diet and ask your dentist about a personalized oral health regimen during this period to prevent major oral health problems.

Some dental health problems may lead to complications in childbirth like:
Visit your dentist during weeks 14 through 20 or the second trimester or early third trimester of your pregnancy. Let your holistic dentist know you’re pregnant. This is so they will know to avoid the use of X-rays, pain medications, antibiotics, and dental anesthetics. Discuss your medical history, past miscarriages if any, and medications with your dentist.
