Daily dental care is just as important as maintaining your routine dental appointments during pregnancy. Brushing every morning and night for two minutes, will help properly remove plaque buildup. You should also be rinsing with water after eating a snack to remove any food build up on your teeth. Use a fluoridated toothpaste – your dental provider can make a recommendation if you have questions about which toothpaste to use.
The proper brushing technique is to angle the bristles toward the gum line, brush the outside surface, inside surface, and chewing surface of each tooth thoroughly. Brush your tongue to prevent bad breath and buildup of bacteria. Be sure to replace your toothbrush every three months, and after being sick.
