Pregnancy is the time of your life when you are most concerned about your health. You want to make sure that your child gets off to a healthy start in his life. It is important that you do not ignore oral health as it is definitely an essential part of a person’s overall health. If you maintain oral hygiene during pregnancy, it will surely prevent oral problems but also have a good impact on the health of your growing baby.
What you eat during pregnancy has an impact on how your baby’s teeth develop. The baby’s teeth develop between third and sixth month of pregnancy. Eat foods rich in calcium, protein, vitamin A, C and D, and phosphorus. Some people have the false notion that calcium for the baby’s teeth is extracted from the mother’s teeth. It is actually provided only by your diet. If there is insufficient amount of calcium in your diet, your body will provide for it from the stores in your bones. So, do not slip up on adequate intake of calcium rich foods such as dairy products and the supplements recommended by your doctor.
Oral care and hygiene in pregnancy is as important as any other aspect of prenatal care.
