Caring for your teeth @evidentdentalhopperscrossing
Myth 1: Babies leech calcium from their Mum’s teeth.
The Verdict: FALSE
This is based on the old wives’ tale that during pregnancy a women loses calcium in her teeth to the developing baby.
Calcium is not taken from the teeth during Pregnancy. If a mother’s intake of calcium is too low, she will lose calcium from her bones.

Other things happen during pregnancy, frequent Snacking, vomiting or reflux, which increases the risk of tooth decay.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy can increase the risk of gum disease.
