Dental Care is Important During Pregnancy

Half of all pregnant women will experience gingivitis, or gum inflammation during pregnancy. Gingivitis leads to periodontal disease, which is a serious infection of the gums. Pregnant women are also at risk of cavities. Adequate dental care ensures that high risk issues are prevented and treated, giving the pregnant woman and her baby the best chance of positive health outcomes. 

Why is Periodontal Disease Concerning?

Pregnant women with periodontal disease are also more likely to experience complications during pregnancy and delivery. It has been linked to preterm birth and low birth weight for the baby.  These complications and others can be severe in extreme cases, so act quickly if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. Time is of the essence during pregnancy. It may seem like you have plenty but it goes quickly!

The Reason Dental Health Can Decline During Pregnancy

There are links to hormonal changes that alter the acidity of the mouth. This causes damage to enamel, gums and increases the risk of decay and cavities. In addition, during pregnancy women are more likely to eat foods high in sugar and at unusual times of the day. Dental care can also be forgotten about since there is so much to do, prepare and think about already in preparation for expanding a family. If severe morning sickness or even hyperemesis gravidarum is experienced, vomiting can be especially damaging to your oral health.

Pregnancy dental care

What Can I do?

Visit the dentist for a check up and clean every single trimester and practice good oral hygiene habits at home. These include brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash. Tobacco use, which increases the risk of developing gingivitis or periodontal disease, should also be avoided.

If you are pregnant or planning a baby, book in for your check ups and cleans here. The best outcomes are achieved by planning ahead before anything gets in the way. Prioritise yourself and your baby by taking good care of your teeth and gums.

Most dental work is safe during pregnancy, but the second trimester is the best time to get and procedures done, to ensure your comfort and safety.

Our dentists here at Dakabin Dental would be happy to answer questions you may have regarding oral health before, during or after pregnancy. Contact us today on (07) 3888 7752

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials such as porcelain or plastic.

They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to your teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length.

What are the different types?

Veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials.

Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers, and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Resin veneers are thinner and require less removal of tooth structure before placement.

Why are veneers used?

They can be used to correct a number of dental problems, including:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large
  • Chips or cracks in the tooth enamel
  • Stains on the teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

 

Veneers can give you a beautiful, white and healthy-looking smile. They are durable and long-lasting. With proper care, veneers can last for many years. They are stain resistant and easy to keep clean.

What care and maintenance is involved?

Veneers require the same care as natural teeth.

Be sure to brush and floss daily, and see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleaning.

Avoid biting hard objects as this can damage them. Also avoid using abrasive toothpastes or whiteners that can scratch the surface.

What does our veneers process involve?

  1. Initial consultation to discover your needs and goals
  2. Formulate cosmetic plan according to your budget
  3. Teeth preparation: gentle shaping in order for them to hold veneer
  4. Permanent veneers placed by our cosmetic dentistry experts
