Pregnant women

Caring for expectant mums’ teeth

When you’re pregnant, there are plenty of plans to be made but don’t forget about your precious teeth. Pregnancy is an exciting time but hormonal changes can lead to ‘pregnancy gingivitis’, which manifests itself as swollen, inflamed gums, and can cause bleeding when you brush your teeth.

Pregnant women are more at risk of developing gum disease due to increased progesterone levels, which affects how the body reacts to the bacteria in plaque.

Pregnancy can also cause other conditions such as:

  • Pregnancy granuloma
  • Severe morning sickness
  • Dry mouth

Remember to make an appointment when you’re expecting, so we can make sure your oral health stays in great shape.
