(HealthDay News) -- While you're pregnant, make sure you pay attention to your teeth and gums.
The American Dental Association offers these mouth-healthy suggestions for pregnant women:
- Brush twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily, as well.
- Snack only in moderation, and make sure to eat a balanced diet.
- Visit a dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
- Talk to your dentist about a night-time antimicrobial mouth rinse if you have trouble controlling plaque.
