Dental problems during pregnancy

Hormonal changes during pregnancy increase your sensitivity to plaque, so reduce the buildup that can lead to gum disease.  Gingivitis is the most common oral disease for expecting women and can be reduced  by brushing twice a day and flossing at least once.  Go to your dentist every three months for a cleaning while you’re pregnant.  Make an appointment if your gums are red, swollen, bleeding or uncomfortable, or if you notice any other changes in your mouth.  And, if you’re prone to morning sickness, be sure to swish with water or mouth wash after vomiting.  This will help flush away the acids that can erode teeth and cause permanent damage.  Just as your whole body goes through huge changes during your pregnancy, your mouth will as well.  Even if you’ve never had a cavity before, you will be more prone to decay during your pregnancy.  Step up for that cleaning every 3 months and your smile will be more healthy, for the rest of your life.
