  Pregnancy and Dental Care

It is crucial to have your teeth cleaned during pregnancy because bacteria from your mouth can get into your bloodstream, causing your body to make certain proteins that can cause early labor.

Mothers should also know that cavities are contagious. Most of the time children get the bacteria that causes cavities from their mothers. When a pacifier gets dropped on the floor, you should never clean it off in your own mouth because you can pass the bacteria along to your child.
