If you are pregnant, it’s more important than ever for you to take good care of your teeth and gums. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase the risk of developing gum disease, which can travel through your blood and harm your developing baby. It is really important that you take care of your teeth and get regular dental check-ups. Make sure your dentist is aware you are pregnant before receiving care.
As a foster youth you get free Dental Care through a program called Denti-Cal. Their website lists providers who take this insurance.
