Dental Health Advice for new and expecting mothers

Posted by Dr. Lakshmi Ashwin (Dental Surgeon, Kamala Dental) on 30th may 2017

With a baby on the way or just born, last thing you have time to think about is your teeth.

If you do not practise good dental health during and after your pregnancy, there could be long- term consequences for you and your baby.

It’s a must to visit your dentist if you are planning to get pregnant or shortly after you become pregnant. That visit can help you to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy throughout your pregnancy.

Gingivitis is the most common dental issue for expecting mothers. High levels of hormone progesterone creates more acid in the mouth during pregnancy which can lead to gingivitis. Symptoms include red, swollen gums that bleed during brushing and flossing. Untreated gingivitis become periodontitis.

Tooth decay is another risk during pregnancy. Acid in your mouth breaks down your enamel when you vomit. Breastfeeding moms are at higher risk. So they have to be always hydrated.

Tips

a. Maintain good oral hygiene

b. Thorough brushing twice per day and flossing once per day

c. Use bacteria killing mouthwash between meals as suggested by your dentist

d. Drink lots of water (Prevent dry mouth)

e. Second trimester will be the right time to visit dentist for oral prophylaxis and cavity fillings.

Please take care of your health first so that you can take good care of your baby.

How can we help when a person’s tooth is accidentally knocked out?

First and foremost, rush to a dentist with your knocked out tooth stored in milk or saliva. Immediate reinsertion and immobilisation is done.

How we manage….

Tooth should be reinserted within a few hours of injury, it should be cleaned with saline, then placed in storage medium. Root surface should not be touched. Milk is preferred storage medium. Saline can also be used if milk is not available. Socket is irrigated with saline and local anaesthetic used to provide analgesia, before reinserting the tooth. After reinserting the tooth is splinted. The patient is advised not to eat or drink anything hot or cold, until definitive care.

Major Surgical Procedures

Posted by Dr.Segin Chandran on 20rd August 2015

Orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery is needed when jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.
