Guide and Manual, 2015
Good oral health during pregnancy can not only improve the quality of life of the pregnant mother, but also potentially reduce complications during pregnancy as well as the risk of her child developing early cavities. This presentation is an education tool for prenatal educators to share with pregnant women, women who have recently given birth, and women who are considering getting pregnant. Presentation objectives are: 1) to increase awareness among women of childbearing age of the importance of oral health during pregnancy, for the overall health of women and their children; and 2) to encourage women to include oral care as part of their routine prenatal care.
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.
