When to see the dentist during pregnancy?
Good oral care during pregnancy is essential for the health of both the expectant mother and your unborn child. That's why it's important to know when you should make an appointment with your dentist or with us at the studio for an Oral HealthCheckup during pregnancy, so you can take care of any problems before they become more serious. So when exactly should pregnant women go to the dentist?
Regular checkups: It's recommended to schedule regular dental visits during pregnancy, such as an Oral HealthCheckup at ALPINE WHITE Studio, to monitor overall oral health and catch potential problems early.
For acute toothaches: If you experience toothaches or other acute dental problems during pregnancy, you should make an appointment with your dentist immediately to receive appropriate dental treatment.
For gum problems: If you notice signs of gum inflammation or bleeding, it is advisable to schedule an Oral HealthCheckup to treat possible pregnancy gingivitis, periodontal disease or other gum disease.
For dental changes: If you notice any changes in your teeth or mouth during pregnancy, such as discolouration, erosion or unusual growths, it is important to have them checked by our professional staff. Our Dental health care professionals can provide necessary treatment and address any concerns you may have about dental changes during pregnancy.
As well as visits to the dentist, dental hygiene treatments are also recommended during pregnancy as they can prevent any dental health problems before they develop. For more serious dental problems that require dental procedures, such as fillings and dental x-rays, clients are then referred to a dental practice.
