Health Tip: Don't Neglect Oral Hygiene During Pregnancy

Brush and floss regularly

(HealthDay News) -- Regular dental visits during pregnancy are a good idea for most women, the American Dental Association says.

The ADA's mouthhealthy.org website offers these oral hygiene tips for moms-to-be:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily using a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Carefully floss between teeth at least once daily.
  • Limit snacks and eat a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Consider using an antimicrobial mouth rinse if your dentist recommends one.
  • If you have morning sickness, rinse your mouth with a teaspoon of baking soda and water.
