Gingivitis Dentist

In decades past, an old wives’ tale decreed that women lost a tooth for every baby. Today, we know that a healthy pregnancy and healthy teeth and gums are not only possible, but likely - especially with help from Dr. John O'Connell, the gum disease dentist that Hinsdale trusts.

At John F. O'Connell, D.D.S Ltd. in Hinsdale we know that pregnancy is a time of change for a woman, and her mouth is no exception. Unfortunately, many of these changes make an expectant mother more susceptible to dental disease. Hormonal changes affect more than your moods; they also may leave the gums more vulnerable to disease.

Pregnant women also tend to eat smaller, more frequent meals, exposing their teeth and gums to sugars and acids more often. And if heartburn hits in the middle of the night, few women want to drag themselves out of bed to brush their teeth after chewing on an antacid.

Pregnant women in the Hinsdale area are encouraged to schedule a dental evaluation with Dr. O'Connell and his friendly staff. The team at John F. O'Connell, D.D.S Ltd. is experienced in caring for teeth and gums during this special time and will be happy to advise you about the special oral hygiene needs of expectant mothers. Taking care of your teeth is just another way you can also take care of your growing baby.

Please call (855) 460-2023 today to schedule a complete dental examination with Dr. O'Connell.
