You Need to See Your Dentist After Delivering Your Baby and Here Is Why


Posted on 6/20/2017 by Brandon Cooley

Getting proper dental care during pregnancy is very important. You need to make sure that your teeth are being well cared for, and that the hormonal changes didn't negatively impact your overall oral health.

Once the baby is born, it takes a little while for the hormones to calm down, but once they do, you need to make sure you go in and see your dentist.

It will help them evaluate your mouth to make sure none of the changes that happened during pregnancy became permanent.

Your Body Needs Time to Recover

During pregnancy, your body needed to expand and adjust to hold the new life it was creating. This process can also cause the tissues in your gums to become a bit more lax, and leave you with bleeding gums.

There are very few procedures that can be done without being overtly necessary during pregnancy, but once the baby is born, more treatment possibilities open up.

Your dentist is going to want to do a thorough cleaning of your teeth and a full examination of your mouth after the baby is born. If any of the signs of gum disease are still present now, early treatment can begin. Plus, if you have any other signs of problems, they can treat those issues, too.

Don't hesitate to go in and see your dentist if you need to while you are pregnant, and keep up with your six-month exams and cleanings. Plus, make sure you go in as soon as you feel back to normal after delivery, so your dentist can make sure that your mouth is back to being healthy.

It won't take long for your body to begin to feel more like you. So, take that moment to do something to help you stay healthy for that precious little bundle of yours.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about your oral health.
