Notice of dental checkup for pregnant women in Shinjuku City

The first trimester of pregnancy is a difficult time both physically and mentally.
Depending on your mood, you may not be able to brush your teeth, your eating habits may change, and the environment in your mouth may deteriorate.
When morning sickness settles down and becomes stable, please take advantage of the Prenatal Dental Health Checkup to learn about the condition of your mouth and use it for prevention and treatment.
Also, please find a "family dentist" in your neighborhood to protect your oral health after childbirth.

Target audience

Those who are pregnant and have a resident registration in the city
*This service is also available for pregnant women who were unable to receive medical care during pregnancy due to moving to a new home or giving birth at home.
