The Links Between a Healthy Pregnancy and Your Healthy Teeth

The Links Between a Healthy Pregnancy and Your Healthy Teeth

Episode 17 of Dangers in Dentistry, originally aired on KPRZ in San Diego.

We all know that mercury is dangerous for a developing fetus or young child (which is why the FDA warns against pregnant and/or nursing women consuming certain types of fish). But what about mercury that may already be in your mouth?

If you or someone you know is pregnant or nursing, you need to know the truth about the affects of mercury fillings during pregnancy (hint: if you’re thinking about becoming pregnant, visit the dentist before). You also should know about the affects of pregnancy on your teeth (for instance, did you know that many women develop tooth decay problems during and/or after pregnancy?).

Get the inside scoop on pregnancy and your teeth in this week’s episode of Dangers in Dentistry, with America’s Holistic Dentist, Dr. Marvin.
