As with all other tissues in your body, your gums are affected by having a baby. Hormonal changes and changes to diet and sleeping habits make caring for your mouth even more important in your time-starved day.
Hormones: Hormonal changes exaggerate the way gum tissues react to plaque. Thorough brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups are essential.
Sleep: Sleep-deprived new moms require at least 6 hours of sleep nightly to fight oral infections and regenerate cells.
Nutrition: A radiant new mom smile required good nutrition. Make sure that your diet contains plenty of Vitamins A, C, and calcium for healthy gums and teeth.
Throughout all of life’s stages, good oral health is important to your overall health. Ensure a vigilant home care regimen to keep your smile is at its best during this exciting time! Call PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry to schedule your teeth cleaning and exam appointment today at:
