Momentum Dental Plans Cover Pregnant Women Safely
Pregnancy cravings for sweets can, obviously, impact dental health. However, pregnancy also causes hormonal changes that affect the gums and loosen ligaments and bones in the jaw. This can increase women’s risk for painful gingivitis and even tooth loss. Gingivitis, or inflammation of the gums, may make it harder to brush and can also lead to a serious gum infection called periodontitis. Periodontitis can spread to bones and ligaments in the mouth, and a study by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists even linked periodontitis with lower birth weights in pregnant women.
Over forty percent of pregnant women in the United States experience some form of periodontal disease or inflammation. Having high-quality dental care is one of the most important steps to take when expecting.
Individual Plans for You AND Your Family
“Individual plan” doesn’t mean it’s only for one person; it just means your insurance isn’t through an employer. Whether you need individual insurance for just yourself or for a spouse and children as well, Momentum has you covered.
