quizquestionworldAre you trying to figure out what on earth to expect (or to do) about morning sickness and your dental hygiene? If so, this curiosity may either be coming from your experience with prior pregnancies, rumors you have heard from friends, or current nausea that has been inhibiting you from your usually stellar dental care. Don’t worry, you are not alone! Get started with a helpful quiz and call us if you still have questions.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: If you are suffering from morning sickness, you essentially have a free pass to avoid dental hygiene for about three months until you start feeling better.
  2. True or False: To protect your smile if you are worried about acid erosion, we encourage women to rinse their smiles with water immediately after being sick.
  3. True or False: We can certainly offer help if you are struggling with morning sickness and general nausea throughout the day (and it is making dental hygiene a struggle).

Quiz Answers

  1. False. It’s extremely important that you stick to your dental hygiene the best that you can to protect your teeth from acid erosion (which may occur as a result of vomiting).
  2. True. Rinsing with water will quickly remove acids from your teeth, helping your mouth reach a more neutral state after morning sickness. Then, wait at least a half hour before brushing to ensure you’re not brushing your teeth while they are under an acid attack and more vulnerable to damage.
  3. True. We can offer a myriad of suggestions, help you reorganize your efforts in dental hygiene and select products that may make the experience much less offensive to your current senses.
