Being pregnant is an exciting time in any woman’s life. However, as you know there are many health precautions that need to be taken during this important time.

At Quest Dental, we provide dental care for pregnant women in Baltimore. However, it is important that you tell our dentist that you are pregnant. If you need emergency dental care we will be able to help you at any point. However, dental care during the first trimester and the second half of the third trimester should be restricted to emergency care. During the second trimester is a great time to come in so we can review how your teeth and gums are doing. Dental checkups are very important while you are pregnant. Hormonal changes that occurred during pregnancy will actually put you at an increased risk for gum disease. Your gums may become tender and bleed easily. There is actually a name for this condition; it is called pregnancy gingivitis. If your gums become swollen, tender, or bleed easily at any time during your pregnancy, make an appointment to come in and talk with one of our dentists as soon as possible. We also encourage our patients to make sure that they brush and floss well at home during pregnancy to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. If you would like an appointment with one of our dentists, contact us today.
