Health Tip: Take Care of Your Teeth During Pregnancy

(HealthDay News) -- While you're pregnant, make sure you pay attention to your teeth and gums.

The American Dental Association offers these mouth-healthy suggestions for pregnant women:

  • Brush twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily, as well.

  • Snack only in moderation, and make sure to eat a balanced diet.

  • Visit a dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.

  • Talk to your dentist about a night-time antimicrobial mouth rinse if you have trouble controlling plaque.
