Apr 25, 2017 10:26PM

Pregnancy and childbirth are the most miraculous times in our lives, and it is important to keep in mind the importance of the overall health of the mother and how it affects that of the child. During pregnancy, the developing child takes advantage of all it can to develop into its healthiest and best self. Mothers are told to eat more and better foods and prenatal vitamins because that is what the fetus is getting.

It is imperative for women to keep up with dental check-ups and cleanings during pregnancy, because the gums and teeth are also tested at this time and may real subtle health problems. Some mothers need to perform salt rinses because their gums are sensitive during pregnancy. Postpone dental X-rays until after birthing to avoid expose the child to unnecessary radiation.
