gum care during pregnancy
Many women can notice swollen gums during first trimester of pregnancy. This is common and is related to hormonal changes that occurs during first three months. Many women may even notice nodule like growth in gum. This is called as pregnancy tumour. Please dont go on name it donot mean any cancerous lesion. You need not to worry. The reason is poor oral hygiene. One need to undergo a routine scaling that is cleaning of teeth. And yes maintain good oral hygiene thereafter. So brush twice daily. Gargle with warm water after every meal. And take a healthy nutritional diet. Do visit your dentist every six months. Wish you a happy motherhood.

Gum Disease

Gum Disease
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.

If you notice any of the following, visit your dentist immediately

Gums that bleed easily
Red, swollen, tender gums
Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
Persistent bad breath or bad taste
Permanent teeth that are loose or separating
Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
Any change in the fit of partial dentures

It is possible to have gum disease and have no warning signs. That is one reason why regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important

Remember: You don’t have to lose teeth to gum disease. Brush your teeth twice a day, clean between your teeth daily, eat a balanced diet, and schedule regular dental visits for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Stop Smoking

If the threat of lung cancer and heart disease has not persuaded you to can the cigs, then sore gums probably won’t do the trick either. Just know that smoking not on;y aggravates gum disease, it can cause it in the first place. There is such a thing as nicotine stomatitis. It is an inflammation of the soft tissue of the mouth that comes from nicotine irritation.
