Importance of dental health during pregnancy

    Poor oral health can lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes, including preeclampsia, pre-term birth, and low birth weight babies.

    Beginning in the second or third month of pregnancy, many pregnant women experience gingivitis due to increased estrogen and progesterone, which can progress to periodontitis. To maintain oral health, regular dental cleanings must be maintained.
