Our Baltimore family dentist will explain to you how important it is to take good care of your teeth and gums while pregnant. Pregnancy causes certain hormonal changes that increase the risk of developing gum disease which, in turn, may affect the health of your developing baby. Before you get pregnant, try to make a dental appointment at Quest Dental so you can have your teeth professionally cleaned. Your gum tissue can also be carefully examined at this appointment, as well as any oral health problems treated prior to your pregnancy.

Of course, tell your Baltimore family dentist if you are pregnant. As a precautionary measure, we will recommend that dental treatments during the first trimester, and second half of the third trimester, should be avoided as much as possible. Being critical times in your baby’s growth and development, it’s a wise choice to avoid being exposed to procedures that could affect the baby’s development in any way. Routine dental care can be received during the second trimester, however, but all elective dental procedures should be postponed until after your baby’s delivery.

If you are taking any type of drugs, including medications and prenatal vitamins prescribed by your doctor, our Baltimore family dentist needs to know the names and dosages of all drugs you are taking, as well as any specific medical advice your doctor has given you. With this knowledge, our Baltimore family dentist may need to alter your dental treatment plan based on the information. For instance, certain drugs, such as tetracycline, can affect the development of your child’s teeth and should not be taken while pregnant. Dental X-rays should also be avoided during pregnancy.

Your regular dental checkup appointment should not be avoided, however, and now, more than any other time, regular periodontal (gum) exams are very important. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that put you at increased risk for periodontal disease and for tender gums that bleed easily, known as pregnancy gingivitis. Pay close attention to any changes in your gums during pregnancy and if tenderness, bleeding, or gum swelling occurs at any time during your pregnancy, be sure to talk with our Baltimore family dentist or periodontist as soon as possible.

Have you experienced tooth loss? Do missing teeth keep your from eating easily, from pronouncing words properly, from smiling proudly? Has your face lost its shape due to tooth loss? If these questions apply to you, you should consider the possibilities of dental implants. Our Baltimore implant dentist and the rest of our staff at Quest Dental are highly trained and experienced in the field and can easily provide you with this life changing procedure. You might be wondering: what exactly are dental implants? The implant itself is a small titanium post that is implanted directly into your jawbone. This metal eventually becomes a part of the bone that surrounds the area, through a process called osteointegration. This metal and bone combination helps preserve your facial contours, and it also provides a strong, solid foundation (similar to the root of a natural tooth) for a crown to be attached. A crown is a small, tooth-colored device, usually made of porcelain or composite resin materials, which essentially serves as an artificial tooth. It is attached to the metal implant in order to create a brand new tooth that is fully functional and natural looking.

Once the entire implant restoration process has been completed, you will be amazed at the changes that have taken place. You will be able to chew your food without any worry or discomfort, you will no longer struggle to pronounce your words correctly, and you will never have to feel embarrassed about sharing your smile with others. Our Baltimore implant dentist would love to help you make these changes. The first step is to schedule an initial consultation and smile consultation, and then we can get you on your way to your brand new, fully functional tooth (or teeth!).
