Good oral health is an important part of a healthy pregnancy. It can improve your health and well-being during pregnancy and contributes to improving the oral health of your baby.
If you haven’t been to your dentist or dental hygienist in the last 9 to 12 months, the first 3 months of your pregnancy is a good time to have your mouth checked. If you see changes in your mouth while you are pregnant, you should also see your oral health professional.
If you are pregnant and have a low income, you may qualify for dental care assistance through the
Alberta Adult Health Benefit.
