It’s always important to practice good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly. But when you’re pregnant, it’s especially critical. Did you know that hormone fluctuations during pregnancy make you more susceptible to gum inflammation and bleeding? And as your baby’s teeth begin developing while in utero, it’s critical that you eat a nutritious, calcium-rich diet.
