Helpful Facts about Pregnancy and Oral Health

Pregnancy is a crucial stage in a woman’s life and maintaining good oral health and hygiene is a must to avoid problems that could potentially complicate your pregnancy. Expectant women require different considerations in terms of their dental care and poor oral health may have serious repercussion for the mother and her unborn child. The teeth and gums are quite prone to bacteria during pregnancy.

The increase in the hormone level of the pregnant woman is one of the reasons why the gums are sensitive to bacteria. Proper oral and dental care is essential to protect the mother and the unborn child especially against a bacterial infection that may cause pregnancy complications. Some of the common oral problems include pregnancy gingivitis, periodontal disease, and pregnancy tumors or pyogenic granulomas.
