In brief: Good home care

Many pregnant women have lapses in their home care because so many other things are going on with their bodies.
It is understandable but something that needs to be guarded against. In addition, make sure regular dental cleanings are kept current along w your exams.

It is therefore very important to see your dental hygienist for regular cleanings and to be be very diligent with your home-care.
