Pregnant women

Tooth care for mothers to be.

It’s important to take care of your oral health during pregnancy as hormonal changes can cause ‘pregnancy gingivitis’, which can lead to swollen and inflamed gums, and bleeding when teeth are brushed.

Pregnant women are at a higher risk of developing gum disease because their progesterone levels can be significantly higher, affecting how the body reacts to the bacteria in plaque.

Pregnancy can also cause other mouth related conditions including:

  • Pregnancy granuloma – this causes red nodules to form on the upper gums
  • Severe morning sickness – this can erode the enamel as the teeth are repeatedly exposed to acid.
  • Dry mouth – this can be addressed by staying adequately hydrated and sucking sugar-free sweets to encourage the flow of saliva.

We recommend you have a check-up while you are pregnant, so we can help keep your teeth and gums healthy.
