Bowling Green is blessed with many pregnant mothers carrying future Bowling Green Babies. Destiny Dental wants to take care of those little ones but, they also want to take care of the mothers before those little ones get here.During Pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences a surge in hormones, which can exaggerate their body’s normal response to plaque. If plaque is not removed daily by brushing and flossing, it can irritate the gums and cause a condition called pregnancy Gingivitis.
Contrary to popular belief, a fetus does not absorb calcium from it’s mother’s teeth; and the old adage a tooth is lost for every pregnancy is not true. While oral health can be affected during pregnancy, it’s often because of poor oral hygiene.
If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, see Destiny Dental right away to schedule cleanings and discuss your oral health. Routine cleanings can generally be performed throughout your pregnancy, but the best time for any dental treatment is during the second trimester. Call Destiny Dental for more questions or to see if you a can schedule cleanings for your pregnancy. They are located at 1720 Destiny Lane and can be reached by phone at 842-3554.
