Reviews of Mama Gums' Books
What are the professionals saying about Pregnancy
and Oral Health?
During Sheila Wolf’s three-decade
long dental hygiene career she diagnosed three pregnancies.
The puffy, red gums of pregnancy gingivitis gave it away
before the expectant mother even knew. As the evidence
linking pregnancy to periodontal disease and periodontal
disease to pregnancy outcomes mounts, Pregnancy and
Oral Health, Sheila’s new book for pregnant
patients, arrives at just the right time.

"A fascinating book that every pregnant
woman MUST read to ensure her own health and that of her unborn

"This book is a super-highway for traveling
to the destination of dental, as well as general, health."

"Mama gums' book contains sound practical
advice backed by scientific evidence to help preserve oral
health in harmony with nature."
Dr. Russell Tontz
"Pre-Term Low Birth
Weight Babies cost the people of the United States untold
billions of dollars every year, and it occurs over 7 times
more often in those women with periodontal infection. Mama-Gums'
book will show you how to prevent and/or treat this infection
before it causes damage. I can enthusiastically recommend
this book to anyone interested in healthier babies!"
Dr. Thomas Baldwin
"I had no
idea that I'd worry so much, about seemingly everything, during
my pregnancy, but I am happy to say that I found Mama Gums'
book early on, so I haven't had to add pregnancy gingivitis and its related complications to the list. Moreover, I have
learned so much from the book that I feel confident that I
will be able to maintain a healthy mouth for life."

reading for expectant mothers everywhere, August 9,
And Oral Health examines the link between gum infections
during pregnancy and an increased risk of premature or underweight
births, as well as heart attack, stroke, and other serious
illness. Chapters provide recommendations for a simple, daily
antibacterial program to support the body's natural healing,
an eight-point test to determine if one has gum disease, advice
for preventing pregnancy gingivitis, straight talk on why
brushing and flossing alone may not be enough, and much more.
Pregnancy And Oral Health is a superbly presented and welcome
supplement to pregnancy reference shelves, and especially
recommended reading for expectant mothers everywhere."
Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
Sheilas book and highly recommend it. The information
it contains is relevant to everyone, not just expectant mothers."
