"Rubbing a paste of baking soda and water on the teeth and leaving it on for 30 seconds can neutralize the effects of acids accompanying morning sickness and help prevent tooth erosion," said Dr. Linda Himmelberger, a PDA member and general dentist from Devon. "Although this is most effective, if this is not possible, then rinse with water immediately afterwards."

Routine X-rays will likely be postponed during pregnancy. However, there may be times when one is needed for dental treatment or a dental emergency that can't wait. Untreated dental infections can pose risk to both mother and her unborn child. Radiation from X-rays is very low and precautions are taken to minimize radiation exposure. However, it is important that a woman let her dentist know if she is pregnant or may be pregnant prior to any X-ray or dental procedure.

During menopause, it is not uncommon for women to develop dry mouth and sore and sensitive gums.

"Dentists can recommend a number of products to help sooth your gums and stimulate salivary flow," Dr. Himmelberger said.

PDA encourages women to talk to their dentist at each life stage and understand changing oral health care needs. Your dentist can answer any questions and suggest helpful tips to ensure excellent dental health.

Watch for an upcoming news release on the topic of men's dental health. For more information on other oral health topics, visit PDA's website at http://www.padental.org.
