When you are pregnant you do everything for two. You know to eat right, exercise, and get plenty of rest, but did you know that you take care of your mouth for two, too?
Good oral health during pregnancy is important for the health of your baby. Women who have cavities when they are pregnant can pass the bacteria that causes them along to their children, and gum disease can lead to premature birth or low birth weight.
Attend this webinar to learn why oral health is important during pregnancy and get tips on how to take care of your own mouth and your little one’s once they have arrived.
