It is important to understand that a baby’s dental care really starts with his or her mother’s healthy pregnancy, because baby teeth begin to form before birth. If you are pregnant, make sure to eat a balanced, nutritious diet and get an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals as advise by your doctor.  Do not avoid your dentist, sadly too many pregnant women do not go to the dentist and seeing a dentist while pregnant is important.  Pregnant women have a higher risk of gum disease and therefore should see their dentist to maintain their oral health while pregnant
