Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of incredible growth and change. The increase in progesterone in your system and the rise of the body’s hormone levels can cause red, puffy gums and irritation. It is important to brush regularly and floss thoroughly twice a day. Periodontal disease during pregnancy increases the risk of having a preterm, low birth weight baby.

We are here to help at all stages of your pregnancy.
