Keep your teeth in good shape and continue to visit your dentist when you are pregnant. Pregnancy can cause or aggravate many types of dental issues, such as gingivitis. Floss every day and brush twice a day to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and strong. If you notice any problems, immediately get in contact with your dentist.
Speak to your doctor prior to you making travel plans, when pregnant. Take documents that detail the prenatal care you’ve received to this point, so that you’ll have them in an emergency.
