Pregnant? Dental Health Is a Big Deal (Video)

If you’re pregnant, dental health is a big deal for both you and your unborn child. Your hormones are causing lots of changes in your body – including your mouth.

For example, pregnant women are prone to a condition called pregnancy gingivitis. Dr. James Whatley will examine you and advise you on how to care for yourself and your baby. Because your baby’s teeth develop between the third and sixth months of pregnancy, the choices you make affect your dental health – and your baby’s too.
