Expectant Mother Program

Growing evidence suggests that pregnant women who have gum disease may be more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too small. While more researching is needed, it appears that gum disease triggers increased levels of biological fluids that can induce labour. Data also suggest that when gum disease worsens during pregnancy, there's a higher risk of having a premature, low birth weight baby.

For some women, morning sickness is a major symptom of pregnancy. Along with the nausea comes additional acid that, if left in your mouth, can erode your teeth. 

Moreover, pregnancy dry mouth can put women at a greater risk for problems such as tooth decay and infections.

Our team at the Cosmetic and Holistic Dentistry Centre understand how stress-full pregnancy can be on the mother’s body. Some hormones can reach up to 10 times the normal level and the immune system may also work differently and changes the way body reacts to bacteria. Hence, we have formulated a program to look after expectant mothers, tailored to the stage of pregnancy. We believe that, during pregnancy, the Mother’s health should always come first.
