The Effect of Oral Health on Pregnancy and Baby

Posted on 1/25/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Pregnancy can have an effect on your oral health; however, that doesn't mean you will have to suffer from tooth and gum sensitivity during the gestation period. Observing a good oral health regimen and eating a balanced diet can ensure you have a healthy pregnancy.
