Full Mouth Reconstruction 1 | Edgewood Dental Care - Edgewood, KY

When you’re pregnant, you have enough to think about: picking the perfect name, setting up the nursery, buying strollers and other gear, visiting the OB on a regular basis to make sure baby’s doing well.

The last thing on your mind may be your oral health.

But if you’re expecting, it’s especially important to make sure you’re getting plenty of calcium so baby’s teeth form correctly. It’s also vital to visit the dentist regularly. Pregnant women are susceptible to a hormone-induced condition called “pregnancy gingivitis.”
