Dental prophylaxis for pregnant patients at our Munich dental practice – preventing dental problems in pregnancy

The key things to know about dental prophylaxis during pregnancy

Why is prophylaxis important during pregnancy?

During pregnancy, the mother’s hormonal balance changes. This can lead to deterioration of the gums, increased susceptibility to tooth decay, increased blood flow to the gums and loosening of the connective tissue. At Dr. Butz and Partners, we will provide you with a preventive care plan. Among other elements, this includes professional teeth cleaning and an in-depth consultation on the risks pregnancy can pose for your teeth – and how you can mitigate these risks. Recognise and minimise dental risks during pregnancy and receive advice from our certified staff!

“Every child costs a tooth”?

Thanks to modern dentistry, this old wives’ tale is no longer true. A preventive care plan that includes prophylaxis treatment can ensure that symptoms such as bleeding gums are normalised and prevent chronic diseases of the gums, such as periodontitis or caries. Our specialist staff at Dr. Butz and Partners will provide you with an in-depth consultation. In addition to a preventive care plan, you will also be given advice on how to integrate preventive care measures into your daily routine during pregnancy.

Nausea in pregnancy – did you know?

Many women suffer from nausea and vomiting during the first three months of pregnancy. However, it is not advisable to brush your teeth straight after being sick. Brushing your teeth immediately after vomiting can damage the tooth enamel that has just been attacked and softened by stomach acid. It’s therefore best to first rinse your mouth out with water and then to avoid cleaning your teeth for at least another half an hour. You can find out more tips by talking to our dentists at Dr. Butz and Partners.
