Rules for proper oral care during pregnancy  

Pregnant women need to be particularly stringent about their oral health. According to the American Dental Association{,} what a woman eats during pregnancy affects the development of their baby, including his or her teeth. This is why it's important for women to get enough calcium, protein, phosphorous and vitamins A, C and D to promote dental health.

Recently, offered some rules for pregnant women to follow to ensure their oral health and that of their baby.

"During pregnancy, the estrogen and progesterone levels will increase a lot, and these hormones might affect your dental care. It has been scientifically proven that elevated hormone levels are directly linked to plaque buildup. If plaque is not removed, this may further lead to swelling in the gums and even gingivitis," according to the news source.

The information provider stated that pregnant women should floss twice a day, use products to keep the gumline clean to prevent gingivitis, visit the dentist during their first and second trimesters and brush their teeth with a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
