Information Card, 2015
This information card is about the importance of good oral care during pregnancy. Pregnant women are provided with information on why the health of their teeth and mouth may affect the health of their pregnancy.
The aim of this document is to provide oral and prenatal care providers in Saskatchewan with a better understanding of the importance and safety of oral care during pregnancy so that oral care can become part of routine prenatal care. The document was developed in collaboration with the Maternal Oral Health Working Group, with many Saskatchewan groups and organizations expressing formal support.
Fact Sheet, 2015
Good oral health is an important part of good overall health. Oral health is particularly important during pregnancy as hormonal changes and changes in eating patterns increase the risk for oral disease. Oral disease during pregnancy may affect not only the health of a pregnant woman, but may also affect the health of her pregnancy and potentially, the health of her infant.
This fact sheet was developed to influence oral care and prenatal care providers in Saskatchewan toward a better understanding of the importance and safety of oral care during pregnancy so that oral care becomes part of routine prenatal care.
