When you’re pregnant, you expect to have the typical changes to happen. Swollen feet, expanded belly, cravings, and the fatigue occur as if you’re climbing a mountain day after day for nine months straight. One unexpected change that can occur during pregnancy is a change in your dental health.

What Causes Dental Health Changes During Pregnancy?

When you’re pregnant, your hormones surge. This hormonal increase causes swollen gums, which can lead to soreness and bleeding. Increased blood flow due to hormonal changes may cause negative dental issues. Food cravings and vomiting have a harmful impact on your teeth as well. Some food cravings (especially sugary ones) can harm your teeth. Vomiting can leave harmful acids on your teeth, which can compromise your tooth enamel and result in tooth decay.

Dental Problems That May Be Related To Pregnancy

  1. Pregnancy Gingivitis
  2. Periodontal Disease
  3. Pregnancy Tumors
  4. Gum Recession
  5. Tooth Loss

Preventing Dental Health Issues During Pregnancy

When you’re pregnant, your top priority is to protect your baby. Research by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health found there is a link between gum disease in pregnant women and premature birth with low birth weight. To protect your dental health and the health of your baby, it’s essential to brush your teeth at least two times a day and floss once per day. It’s also important to maintain your regular checkups and cleanings at ConfiDENT.

Best office ever! The staff is super friendly and event though I’ve only been here 3 times it feels like everyone here knows me personally. Lol weird I know right? But that’s just excellent service. Won’t go any where else but here for my dental care!

Dr. Cesar and his staff are the best! Every time I go there I feel I’m in good hands and I don’t have to worry about anything. I did a lot of work on my teeth with them and i have more to do and definitely it’s the place to go. Thank you!
