How I can improve my dental health during pregnancy?

Many women find that hormone changes cause their oral health to get worse during pregnancy and a study* suggests that poor oral hygiene could have an impact on an unborn baby.

Please refer to the Mum’s To Be leaflet which contains detailed information on:

  • Keeping your gums healthy during pregnancy
  • Healthy diet
  • Smoking and gum disease

NHS dental treatment is free while you are pregnant and until your baby is one year old.

To find an NHS dentist in your area visit www.nhs.uk and type ‘find a dentist’ into the search box.
