During pregnancy, many changes occur within the body which affect your oral health. Some pregnant women can experience sensitive teeth and gums. Despite this, orthodontic treatment during pregnancy is safe, and is an effective way of improving the aesthetics of your smile while also improving your overall health.
If you are considering orthodontic treatment during your pregnancy, or were undertaking orthodontic treatment during the time you fell pregnant, it is important that you consult with your orthodontist for their recommendation regarding your orthodontic treatment.
We will discuss with you the options that are available and analyse your medical history to evaluate whether the use of braces during pregnancy will have any complications for you. You should also use this time to ask any questions you have regarding pregnancy and your dental hygiene!
It’s important to consult with an experienced orthodontist to ensure that your dental health is not contributing to the pressure of pregnancy.
