Dr. Chetan Parikh understands that women have greater dental needs than men. This is because women experience monthly hormone cycles, as well as pregnancies. The hormone changes that occur with the menstrual cycle and pregnancy are associated with a higher occurrence of dental diseases, especially periodontal disease, and increased likelihood of tooth decay. Our dentist has the training and knowledge necessary to help you avoid the dental problems associated with the menstrual cycle and pregnancy so that your teeth can remain in good health.

Tell our dentist if you are pregnant. During certain stages of pregnancy, it may be wise to avoid dental treatments as much as possible. You should avoid X-rays while you are pregnant. If you have a dental emergency and dental X-rays are unavoidable, our dentist will use extreme caution to safeguard you and your child. Talk to Dr. Chetan Parikh for tips to uphold your dental health during the hormonal changes of pregnancy.

At Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS, DABDSM, our dentist and dental team will customize your treatment to meet your unique dental needs. We will take into account your circumstances and hormone changes and tailor your treatment accordingly.
