Let us start by congratulating you for the new life you are nurturing and are about to bring in to the world. Now, we know you are very excited and are doing everything to stay healthy and fit. You make your prenatal appointments on time, are following every word your Ob-Gyn tells you and eating everything right. So it’s perfect right? What if we told you that there is one very important thing you are missing which can be crucial to you and your baby’s health?

We are talking about your gums. While you might not be aware of the potential risks related to gum diseases, it might be a serious health hazard and here are 5 ways you can prevent your gums from complicating your pregnancy:

1. Visit the Periodontist :

Visiting the periodontist ensures that even if a gum disease like gingivitis or periodontitis is beginning to form, it can be detected before the stage of symptoms and treated in time to avert any potential damage. We know it’s scary to sit in that chair with your mouth wide open, but do it for the well being of yourself and the baby. Gum disease treatment in Pune are few of the best in the country so you can rest assured you are in the right hands.

2. Brush-Floss-Brush-Repeat :

If you brush and floss regularly and correctly, then this simple habit can ensure your gums and teeth are safe from any bacteria. But remember, you need to floss and brush correctly so that you keep your gums and teeth clean but don’t end up harming them.

3. Go Sugar Free : When it comes to chewing gums, go sugar free and trust us when we say that the sugar free chewing gums will keep your gums healthy.

4. Eat Your Vitamins : Vitamin D and C go a long way in keeping your gums healthy and preventing any diseases or symptoms that might be on the outbreak. Besides this, you can never have an overdose of these vitamins, so stock up.

5. Go Raw : Eating raw vegetables can help your gums get the right exercise, strengthen them and clean all at the same time.
