Your Bloor West Dentist advises on oral health for expectant moms

If you're pregnant or planning a pregnancy, you've got a lot to think about. Your gums may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but Bloor West Village dentist, Dr. Kostirko advises to not neglect your oral health during this exciting time.

 
PRLog - Nov. 7, 2012 - ETOBICOKE, Canada -- The rise of hormones during pregnancy can leave teeth and gums sensitive and more susceptible to tooth decay and gum infections. Developing gingivitis is very common among pregnant women and serious untreated cases can develop into periodontal disease. Etobicoke dentist in Bloor West, Dr. Kostirko has treated periodontal disease in expectant mothers throughout his over 20 years of practice. Periodontal disease attacks the tissues and bones supporting the teeth, leaving sores that allow the bacteria to enter the blood stream and move throughout the body.

In pregnant women, the bacteria can reach the placenta, where the developing baby does not have an immune system capable of fighting off this disease. Signs of gum disease can include red, swollen, tender gums; gums that have receded; bad breath and loose teeth. Dr. Kostirko of Bloor West Smiles dental, recommends that all pregnant women should brush and floss every day and receive at least two thorough dental cleanings during pregnancy in order to maintain good oral hygiene and avoid potential problems.

Please contact Bloor West Smiles Dentistry http://www.bloorwestsmiles.com, a Bloor West Village dental practice serving Etobicoke community for over 20 years, if you are interested in more information about prevention and treatment of gum disease or dental care before, during and after your pregnancy.
