Pregnancy and infant tips from your dentist

  1. Many women develop bleeding gum’s during pregnancy and this can affect the unborn baby, if you suspect you may have gum disease it’s important you make an appointment to see your dentist.
  2. Do not use any sweet substances on your babies dummy (e.g. honey) as this can cause serious tooth decay.
  3. Never clean your baby’s dummy with your mouth as this can transfer bacteria from your own mouth increasing the risk of tooth decay in your baby.
  4. Pregnant women who experience morning sickness with vomiting are at high risk of tooth erosion. If this is to happen immediately rinse with water and do not brush for at least 1 hour.
  • Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. It’s much better for your teeth than the bottle stuff. And cheaper, too!
