Gum Disease During Pregnancy
Gum Disease During Pregnancy Can Be Treated At Machias Dental Care. Many mothers have experienced gum disease, dental pain and/or tooth extraction during or shortly after their pregnancy. This is often seen as being a \"normal\" side effect of being pregnant. However Dr. Sparaga feels that dental disease, which is an infection of the teeth and/or gums, is not \"normal\" for any patient.

There are three basic events that happen during pregnancy which make the patient more susceptible to dental disease. First, hormonal changes may make the gums more susceptible to gum disease.

Second, pregnant women tend to eat smaller, more frequent meals, exposing their teeth and gums to sugars and acids more often. Third, cravings for \"junk foods\" and inadequate oral hygiene pose an increased threat to the teeth and gums.

Pregnant women in the Machias area are advised to schedule a dental evaluation and receive preventive dental care at Machias Dental Care. Personalized oral hygiene instruction by Dr. Sparaga will be given to fight disease and promote overall good health for the mother and her baby.

Please call us at 207 255-8601 to schedule a complete examination.
