  • Free dental checkup for pregnant mothers

Pregnancy is a joyous and exciting time for expecting mothers, but it's also important to take care of one's oral health during this special period. Did you know that the oral health of a pregnant mother can actually have a direct impact on the health of the growing foetus inside her? That's right – a healthy mouth during pregnancy is not just important for the mother, but also for the developing baby. Studies have shown that the bacteria that cause gum disease (also known as periodontitis) can cross the placenta and affect the foetus. This can increase the risk of premature birth, low birth weight, and other health problems for the baby. In addition, the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can make the gums more susceptible to gum disease, which is why it's especially important for expecting mothers to take care of their oral health during this time.

The good news is that maintaining good oral hygiene is simple and can be done with a few easy steps:

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  2. Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth.
  3. Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
