Pregnancy takes a toll on your gums and teeth - but
3 Things to know:
1. You are at risk for gum disease:
During pregnancy, altered progesterone levels put gums at
increased risk for disease, which can increase risk for pre-term
birth. Bleeding gums are a warning – don’t ignore the signs.
2. You can transfer cavities to your baby:
Mothers pass cavity-forming germs to their baby – prevent
this transfer by enjoying delicious xylitol.
3. Hormonal changes cause mouth acidity - let xylitol help:
Hormonal changes cause mouth acidity, which grows cavity
bacteria and weakens teeth. Xylitol can counter acidic attacks
and help remineralize teeth. Incorporate xylitol into your life
|“The best gift you can give your
children is a lifetime of being free of dental disease.
You must start now with your own oral health, to prevent
passing harmful bacteria to your baby.”
