The Importance Of Good Oral Care In Pregnancy

by Lori Herren March 27, 2020 2 min read

Carrying around a living, growing, developing little human being inside of you is overwhelming, to say the least. This hits home when you look at the medical facts: EVERY SINGLE THING you do, eat, experience, affects your unborn child and how their future is shaped by your decisions. It puts a lot of pressure on Mom, realizing how important these decisions are, but so worth every ounce of effort to have a healthy, happy baby that grows into a healthy, happy child!


One of the most surprising issues pregnant women face occurs in their dental health.  The CDC reports that nearly 60 to 75% of pregnant women have gingivitis, which is an early stage of periodontal disease. This can cause red, swollen gums due to inflammation, a direct result of changing hormones during pregnancy. This is a serious problem that, if left untreated, can cause bone loss, infected gums, and eventually loss of teeth. Your personal oral care is SO VERY IMPORTANT!


A mother’s oral care and habits are a good indicator of how her children’s oral health will turn out. That’s why good oral care from the very beginning is so vitally important. Brilliant Oral Care exists to bring the best, state of the art, most innovative personal oral care products to you and your family. Designed specifically to nurture the expectant mom’s sensitive teeth and gums, the Brilliant Expectant Mom Toothbrush features a round brush head with over 18,000 bristles! It’s designed with multidirectional bristle technology, reaching multiple surfaces of your teeth and gums all at once while giving you a soft, gentle clean.  Brilliant brushes actually polish your teeth instead of sweeping them like ordinary flat brushes. No more twisting or turning to maintain the ADA recommended 45 degree angle. Brilliant brushes effortlessly address plaque at the gum line, maintaining that 45 degree angle no matter how you hold the brush. It works to remove 2x more plaque than flat brushes, while giving you the gentle clean you are looking for. Your teeth deserve that “I just left the dentist” polished feel. The innovative, round design of the Brilliant Expectant Mom Toothbrush literally means you “can’t miss” with the most efficient clean available!
