Dental care during pregnancy


It is very important not to forget to take care of your oral care during pregnancy. Damage to the teeth and gums can affect the health of both mother and baby.


Try to visit a dentist or dental hygienist for a preventive check-up before planning pregnancy. The condition of the teeth and gums will be examined and evaluated, and if necessary, treatment will be performed


Before visiting the dentist, consult with your doctor about the precautions that apply to you personally during dental procedures

Always mention to the oral care specialist that you are expecting. Tell them if you are taking any medicines.

Preventive examinations, treatment, oral hygiene, and emergency procedures can be performed throughout pregnancy. If necessary, X-rays may be performed. Modern digital technology and safeguards allow the safe conduct of all procedures.

Don't cancel your appointments just because you're expecting. Prevention during pregnancy is very important. Hormonal changes can trigger a condition called pregnancy gingivitis, characterized by sensitive, bleeding, and severely swollen gums. As many as 40% of pregnant women experience symptoms of gingivitis during the entire pregnancy period.

Good oral hygiene - brushing the teeth and proximal surfaces twice a day helps prevent dental and gum diseases.

Nausea and vomiting can make teeth brushing difficult. Choose a toothpaste with a milder taste, use a brush with a smaller head, and brush your teeth with your head tilted towards your chest.


Cravings for sweets and other snacks are common during pregnancy. However, please do not forget that this greatly increases the risk of caries. 

Caries can develop during pregnancy due to a tendency to snack frequently, nausea/vomiting, dry mouth syndrome, and poor hygiene.

Choose healthy balanced meals and snacks. This is very important for the health of the mother and the baby (e.g. baby teeth develop around the third month of pregnancy).
