Other pregnancy side effects that can impact your oral health include morning sickness and pregnancy cravings.
Morning sickness is known for causing tooth enamel erosion due to acid reflux. To best care for your teeth when morning sickness occurs, be sure to rinse your mouth out with warm water or with a fluoride mouthwash. Wait at least an hour before you brush your teeth.
It can be common to crave strange combinations of food during pregnancy, which can often be harmful to your oral health. To avoid tooth decay, leave the sugary snacks behind and try opting for healthy snacking options such as fresh fruit with Greek yoghurt.
