At Chet B. Hawkins DDS Inc, we recognize that pregnancy can be a difficult time for many women. We want your pregnancy to be as stress-free as possible, and we think that means keeping your oral cavity clean and healthy. Because we want you to retain robust oral health during your pregnancy, for your sake and for the baby’s sake, we’ve amassed the following list of tips you can use to keep your mouth healthy.

-Eat a balanced diet to keep the enamel of your teeth strong and forego tooth decay.
-Avoid consuming many sugary foods and sodas, which can cause tooth decay and periodontal disease, both of which can affect your baby.
-Get in contact with us if you are expectant, and we will tweak your care accordingly.
-To stay comfortable in our office, deliberate on bringing a pillow and some headphones along with you.
-Maintain routine inspections with our office, but avoid non-emergency oral work until after the pregnancy.
-As always, brush your pearly whites twice daily and floss your teeth at least one time per day.
