Pregnant Women

Pregnancy can be an exhilarating time, and while you have a lot to prepare for, your oral health may be the last thing on your mind. However, it is crucial to give special attention to your teeth and gums during this time. Here are several reasons why expectant women should pay special attention to their teeth:

1. During pregnancy, progesterone levels can be up to ten times higher than normal, altering the body's response to contaminants and making it more susceptible to periodontal disease, also known as pregnancy gingivitis.

2. Some expectant women develop a gum growth known as a pregnancy granuloma, which consists of red nodules typically found on the upper gums. Although they are not harmful, they can be irritating.

3. As a result of constant exposure to acid, severe morning sickness may cause additional oral health issues such as dry mouth and dental erosion.
