Are you radiating a motherly glow? Are you smiling about your new little peanut that’s on the way? If so, let’s keep your smile in tip-top shape so you can continue smiling that radiant smile in Hampton, VA!

There are things you need to do in order to do so, and those things are:

-Keep up with your regular dental cleaning and exam appointments. During your visit, it’s important to mention that you are pregnant. That way we can take extra caution when caring for your smile. It’s also important to tell our team about any medications and vitamins you are taking. Lastly, tell us about any specific advice your doctor has told you. This information can help us perform the best treatment.

-Keep up on oral hygiene each day. This means you need to brush (twice a day), floss, and rinse. Doing these things can help you prevent major dental issues, like pregnancy gingivitis. Pregnancy gingivitis is a problem that develops when the plaque on your smile does not get removed. It can result in preterm birth.
