During pregnancy, you’re doing everything you can to make sure you stay healthy for the baby. You eat right, try to get a little exercise in, avoid alcohol, try to stay stress free, etc. Here at Forest Edge Dental we get it can all be a lot. However, being a trusted Hoffman Estates family dentist we do want to make sure something else isn’t getting left behind… your oral health!
Oral health care is an exceptionally important component of a healthy pregnancy. It is important for both the care of the expecting mother, as well as the health of the unborn child. There is quite a bit of discussion around if dental visits are safe while pregnant. Forest Edge Dental and Dr. Johnson want patients to know dental care during pregnancy is not only safe, it is essential and effective at combating pregnancy gingivitis and promoting overall health for mother and child. The American Dental Association, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics all support women receiving dental care while pregnant.
