Your Dental Health During Pregnancy Marietta, GA

Taking care of your teeth during pregnancy is important for you and your baby. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes which could cause dental problems. Your dental health should be part of your prenatal care. Gingivitis and cavities are common among pregnant women.

According to the CDC, 60-75% of pregnant women have gingivitis. This is an early stage of periodontal disease that happens when the gums become red and swollen from inflammation that may be brought on by the changing hormones. If left untreated, the bone supporting the tooth recedes and the gums become infected.

Pregnant women may also be at risk for cavities due to their eating habits. The CDC states that women who have a lot of cavity-causing bacteria during pregnancy and after delivery could transmit these bacteria from their mouth to the mouth of their baby.

Tips on your dental health before, during, and after pregnancy:

Before Pregnancy:Make a dental appointment before getting pregnant or as soon as you can once you find out so your teeth can be professionally cleaned, examined, and any oral health problems can be treated.

During Pregnancy: Routine dental care can be done anytime during pregnancy and should not be skipped because you are pregnant. Tell your dentist any medications and prenatal vitamins you are taking in case they need to alter your dental treatment plan. Pay attention to any changes in your gums and notify your dentist of any changes. Eat a healthy, balanced diet including dairy that is good for your baby’s developing teeth, gums, and bones.

After Pregnancy: Make an appointment with your dentist soon after delivery to have a thorough dental and periodontal health examination.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
