We knew that, if you have poor dental health, you are most likely to have periodontal disease or gum problems, which would lead a bad infect to your babies.

The nine-month period can cause a lot of problems to both mom and baby once the mother does not practice good oral hygiene. Pregnant women focus only on visiting the OB-gynecologist and not the dentist, they are not aware of the effect of oral hygiene to them or to their babies.

Do not underestimate the fact that diseased teeth are the beginning of many internal diseases, some of which may have even more serious consequences. There are numerous helpful prevention tips that a pregnant woman can do and some of it can be done easily.

That’s healthy food and moderate diet. Remember to get enough food rich in calcium, which is the major building material of the teeth. The temperature of our food is another important factor for the strength of the teeth.

Then be carefully when brushing your teeth. Bad bacteria lives in the tongue and brushing the top of the tongue will take away these bacteria. Brushing of teeth needs to be done after each meal to clean the mouth. The signs include having bad breath or halitosis, red and sore gums and bleeding of gums when brushing or flossing.

Love yourself; love your baby as well as he is in your womb so as you to have to prefer to do what is good for her than yourself. Even though you are craving on a food you have to sacrifice and choose the ones that are good for him. Even the pregnant women who love to drink milk before bedtime should adjust and rinse their mouth first before going to sleep because the milk can cause tooth decay.

A good oral hygiene can be very helpful if you want to build a good oral health. The dentist cleans professionally the teeth and removes plaque in a way we cannot do with the toothbrush and toothpaste at home.
