When it comes to pregnancy, there are many rules to live by: healthy diet, no smoking, no alcohol, regular doctor visits and so on. Clearly, pregnancy is hard enough without having to think about your dental health. However, dentist Dr. Gatgens at Accent Smile Center in Dickson, TN, reminds you that pregnancy and teeth are linked. Not only does your dental health affect you, it also affects the growing baby inside you. Just like you’re eating for two, you’re also keeping your teeth healthy for two. According to Dickson dentist, Dr. Gatgens, it’s important for pregnant women to have great dental hygiene even before they try to conceive.
