The American Dental Association offers these mouth-healthy suggestions for pregnant women:

  • Brush twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily, as well.
  • Snack only in moderation, and make sure to eat a balanced diet.
  • Visit a dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
  • Talk to your dentist about a night-time antimicrobial mouth rinse if you have trouble controlling plaque.
