Good oral care can help reduce adverse pregnancy outcomes

Updated: Oct 5

Did you know that periodontitis can be related to adverse pregnancy outcomes such as low fetal birth weight, premature birth and excessively high maternal blood pressure (preeclampsia)?

According to Dr. Patricia Silva, DDS at By The Lake Dental, our oral health is linked to our overall health and extra care should be taken during pregnancy. "In addition to regular oral health routines like brushing twice a day and flossing daily, it's very important to visit your dentist more often (every 3-4 months) for check-ups and oral hygiene."

Check out this article on the oral care during the pregnancy.
