PREGNANT WOMEN AND THEIR PERIODONTAL HEALTH
The medical and dental communities concur that maintaining periodontal health is an important part of a healthy pregnancy. Non-surgical periodontal therapy is safe for pregnant women, and can result in improved periodontal health. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently released a statement encouraging pregnant women to sustain their oral health and recommended regular dental cleanings during pregnancy.
Routine brushing and flossing, and seeing a dentist for a comprehensive periodontal evaluation during pregnancy may decrease the chance of adverse pregnancy complications. By maintaining her periodontal health, an expectant mother is not only supporting her overall health, but also helping to ensure a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby.
