Pregnancy

Looking after your teeth when you’re expecting

If you are pregnant, hormonal changes can mean you are more likely to develop gum disease, which can lead to swollen, inflamed or bleeding gums. These changes include an increase in progesterone which affects how the body reacts to the bacteria in plaque.

Pregnancy can also cause other oral conditions including:

  • Pregnancy granuloma – when red nodules form on the upper gums
  • Severe morning sickness – which can erode enamel
  • Dry mouth – you can combat this problem by drinking lots of water and sucking sugar-free sweets to encourage the flow of saliva

Be sure to have a check-up while you are pregnant, so we can keep an eye on your teeth and gums.
