Mothers ‘warned over dental health issues’

Dental health should be a key concern for pregnant women.

Women who are pregnant could be at a greater risk of miscarriage if they have poor oral health, it has been claimed.

Beverley Beech, honorary chair of the Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services, said untreated gum disease could be one of the reasons women give birth prematurely and to ensure this is not the case, women are advised to fastidiously keep their oral health high.

She commented: “It is not made very clear in any of the leaflets that are out. The dentists know that, but it doesn’t get through to the obstetricians, midwives and those involved in other areas of healthcare.”

According to the British Dental Health Foundation, due to hormone changes during pregnancy, some women may notice that their gums become inflamed or bleed.

The organisation noted that in order to tackle this problem, prospective mums should ensure they keep a high level of oral hygiene and this could mean regular trips to the oral hygienists.
