Home > Health Library > Dental Care During Pregnancy
It's important to take care of your body when you are pregnant. This includes your teeth and gums. A healthy mouth—and good dental habits—will help you and your baby.
Taking care of your teeth while you are pregnant helps prevent cavities and other dental problems. Brush, floss, and try to limit sugary foods and drinks. Getting the right vitamins and nutrients is good for your baby's teeth, which begin to form before birth. And remember that it's safe—and a good idea—to visit the dentist during your pregnancy.
