Pregnant Mom’s oral health is important to baby

Did you know babies often mimic the same bacteria in their mouths as their Mom’s! We all have

‘good’ bacteria in our mouths, but if Mom has a cavity, then there are some ‘bad’ bacteria

present. Mom’s often try food for baby with the same spoon for temperature and taste or clean

a soiled pacifier with their mouth, this ‘bad’ bacteria can then be transferred from Mom’s mouth

to baby’s mouth by saliva. This is why Mom’s-to-be need to take extra special care of their own

teeth.
