How to Avoid Pregnancy Gingivitis
Even though your dentist is constantly reminding you to brush, floss, and rinse daily, it's easy to skip a step if you're rushed out the door in the morning or too tired at night.

However, if you knew that what goes on inside your mouth has a direct impact to what goes on in the rest of your body, would that cause you to make sure you did it every day?

For example, pregnancy gingivitis is a possible health threat for pre-term delivery or stillbirth.

In addition to regular brushing and flossing, are there other steps women can take to ensure good oral health habits and have healthier and safer pregnancies?

Listen in as Susan Maples, DDS, shares the importance of oral health, as well as the warning signs of pregnancy gingivitis.
