Helping you after your baby is born.

As a new mom, you’re likely to have a lot of questions about the health of your gums and teeth, as well as questions about your baby’s developing gums. We’re here to help!

Helpful Tips For New Moms

With a new baby comes a new lifestyle. Late nights, feeding schedules, and the barrage of diapers can sometimes leave new moms feeling stressed. Here are a few tips to help make your life – and your dental health – a little bit easier.

Mom’s Gums

Sometimes, moms develop gum problems during pregnancy. If these problems persist after baby is born, it’s best to get an evaluation.

Breastfeeding

Most prescription drugs are safe to take while breastfeeding. To minimize risk, wait four hours to breastfeed after taking a prescription.

Your Teeth

Over the next several months, life will be a bit hectic. Don’t forget to brush your teeth twice a day, and always take time to floss!

Baby Teething

Some foods, such as yogurt or applesauce, can provide relief for your baby during the teething process.

Manage Stress

Stress can increase the likelihood of canker sores, teeth grinding, and even gum disease. Find time everyday to relax!

Did you know that your dental health affects your baby?

If you don’t take care of your dental health, you could transmit bacteria to your baby without even realizing it! This could be as simple as giving your baby a kiss, or sharing from their baby spoon. Make sure you are taking time for your oral health to keep both you and baby healthy!
