Myth: Have a Baby, Lose a Tooth [ video ]


– Hi, it’s Dr. Shehan from Dentists of Ivanhoe, and I want to bust the myth, have a baby, lose a tooth.

It’s a fact that when you’re an expecting mother, you’re at increased risk for tooth decay, gum disease and infections, and this is due to the hormonal changes that you go through during your pregnancy.

With proper care and a healthy diet, you can significantly reduce this risk of having tooth decay or gum disease. So guys, it is a big myth. Most expecting mothers can maintain a very healthy mouth throughout their pregnancy and beyond that as well. So I’m just gonna bust this myth and say, have a baby, lose a tooth, simply not true.
