Unfortunately, pregnancy can take a toll on the smile. In fact, it can make the teeth and gums susceptible to major dental issues. This is why Dr. Federico Lago and our dental team encourage you to keep your smile in the best condition possible while you are pregnant in Peabody, Massachusetts.

The first thing you should do is visit Dr. Federico Lago at Zicherman, Lago, and Associates, PC when it has been six months since you’ve been in for an appointment. Your six-month checkups are very important for a healthy smile and a healthy baby. While you’re here, don’t forget to tell our dental team that you are pregnant, and don’t forget to mention any medications or vitamins you are taking as well as the dosages. To help us even more, please tell us about any medical advice your doctor has given you.

The second thing you should do is clean your teeth and gums regularly. Doing so can save your smile and baby from dental issues, especially issues like gum disease. Gum disease is a dangerous issue that can attack your smile, oral health, and overall health. If you’re not careful, it can encourage premature birth.

Call Zicherman, Lago, and Associates, PC at 978.535.2500 if you have any questions or if you’re interested in knowing more. We look forward to your phone call!
