Brushing for Two: Pregnancy & Your Oral Health
Pregnancy is an exciting and busy time. With so much to think about and consider, it can be easy to forget about your oral health. However, this is one of the most important times in your life to maintain a good oral care routine.
60 to 75% of pregnant women experience gingivitis during pregnancy. The Cleveland Clinic states that women have an increased sensitivity to oral health problems at this time because of the unique hormonal changes they experience. As hormone levels shift dramatically, these changes affect the blood supply to the gum tissue and the body’s response to the toxins that result from plaque build-up.
Armed with this insight, at Spotlight Oral Care, we knew we needed to create an active formula that could help support the oral health of both pregnant and breastfeeding women during this time. There are so many parts of life that change during pregnancy and, as mothers and dentists, we wanted to create a toothpaste that would help pregnant and breastfeeding mothers take a moment for themselves during the day, because good oral health means good overall health.
Our Spotlight Oral Care Pregnancy Toothpaste has been formulated specifically for expectant and breastfeeding mothers. Using active, clinically proven, safe ingredients, this toothpaste targets some of the most common oral care concerns of pregnant and breastfeeding women, from cavity protection and strengthening enamel to maintaining gum and tooth Health.
Our formula is also supported by Folic Acid, which is important during pregnancy.
The toothpaste’s mild formula is perfect for those experiencing illness during pregnancy, too.
As with all oral health, prevention is always better than cure. A good oral health routine should involve brushing twice daily for two minutes each time and flossing daily. Visiting your dentist every 6 months is essential in maintaining overall oral health, but during pregnancy you should visit every 3 months to ensure your oral health is maintained. If you are experiencing sickness during pregnancy, wait one hour after being ill to brush your teeth.
All of our Spotlight Oral Care solutions are suitable for expecting or breastfeeding mothers, excluding our Whitening Strips.
