Take good care of your teeth and gums while pregnant

It is important for you to take good care of your teeth and gums while pregnant. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increases the risk of developing gum diseases which in turn can affect the health of your baby. Now more than any other time, regular periodontal (gum) examinations are very important, because pregnancy causes hormonal changes that put you at increased risk for periodontal diseases and for tender gums that bleed easily-a condition called pregnancy gingivitis. If bleeding or gum swelling occurs at any time during your pregnancy, talk with your dentist or periodontist as soon as possible
