Smoking while Pregnant? QUIT NOW, Here’s Why:

For decades studies have been conducted to prove how harmful smoking is for our bodies.
Smoking can cause many complications to our bodies, especially dental problems:

  • Bad breath
  • Weakening of your tooth enamel
  • Gum irritation or infections
  • Oral cancer

Dental Care is concerned for their patients who smoke. For those who smoke, it is with certainty that harmful complications will arise. (Sooner than later.) Especially for women who struggle to quit smoking, even when pregnant.

Centers for Disease Control reports that 1 in 14 woman smoke during pregnancy. Dr. Simon wants to reinforce the importance of NOT SMOKING DURING PREGNANCY! Smoking when pregnant does not only affect your own body, it harms your child’s also. The oral health complication resulting from smoking can lead to risks during pregnancy. There is a strong correlation between oral health and pregnancy. Read more about Oral Health and Pregnancy.

“Did you know that pregnant women with chronic periodontal (gum) disease during the second trimester are up to seven times more likely to give birth prematurely?”

Ask our dentists and dental hygienists about the benefits of quitting and how you can improve your dental health. Bad breath and yellow teeth are easier to fix than cancer! It is important to get a routine cleaning and oral exam every six months, especially if you smoke.
