Dentist visits encouraged for pregnant women
Seeing a dentist regularly is a good idea for everyone — especially for pregnant women. Gianna Marini is about a month away from having her first child. She doesn't neglect seeing her doctor or getting regular dental care. "I just think that your overall health starts with your oral health," Marini said. Doctors and dentists have not always taken advantage of that connection. "We've been trying to promote dental care in our pregnant patients," said Dr. Alice Chuang of University of North Carolina Obstetrics and Gynecology. "As an OB-GYN, it's definitely not a topic I was taught to frequently address with patients."
