Taking good care of your body while you are pregnant is crucial. It not only contributes to you and your long term health, but it really benefits the health and development of your unborn child. During your pregnancy, the hormones in your body tend to increase, making it common to get gingivitis. Severe gum disease in a pregnant woman has been connected to premature and low birth-weight babies. Also, during pregnancy, when the crowns of the unborn child’s teeth are developing and the outer layer of the permanent molars are forming, it is very important to eat a well balanced diet and take your prenatal vitamins. A mother’s poor diet during pregnancy can commonly be associated with tooth decay.
During pregnancy, bacteria from your teeth can be transmitted to the fetus. To ensure a healthy fetus, good nutrition and proper oral health care, including frequent brushing and flossing, are crucial at this time. This will help guarantee your baby has a healthy set of teeth someday.
While you are pregnant and after your baby is born, it is imperative to visit your dentist frequently and have your teeth cleaned regularly. Since bacteria may be transmitted by a mother just kissing her new baby, it is important to use products recommended by your dentist like chlorexidine mouth wash or products with Xylitol in them to avoid preventable bacterial infections.
Taking care of your teeth and gums makes sense all of the time. While you are pregnant, remember that you are not only taking care yourself but taking care of the health of your precious unborn child.
Consider these suggestions while pregnant:
They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.
We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!- Claire M.
I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.- Sara R.
Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
The folks at Burg Children’s Dentistry are excellent! Our four year old daughter loves going there and they have set her up to enjoy going to the dentist for years to come! I have recommended them to friends already! Thanks for a great job guys!- Watt C.
