Congratulations!!! You are pregnant
it’s a great news It’s important for you to take good care of your teeth and gums while pregnant. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase the risk of developing gum diseases which, in turn, can affect the health of your developing baby.
General Dental Problems During Pregnancy:
Your mouth can be affected by the hormonal changes you will experience during pregnancy For example :- Some women develop a condition known as “Pregnancy Gingivitis “ An inflammation of the gums that can cause swelling and tenderness. Your gums may also bleed a little when you brush/floss.
2.Increased risk of Tooth Decay
Pregnant women may be more prone to cavities for a number of reasons Morning Sickness can increase the amount of acid your mouth is exposed to, which can eat away at the outer covering of your tooth(enamel) If you are eating more carbohydrates than usual, this can cause decay. It’s especially important to keep up your routine, as poor habits during pregnancy have been associated with premature delivery, intrauterine growth restrictions, gestational diabetes and pre eclampsia.
In some women, overgrowth of tissue called “Pregnancy Tumours” appear on gums most often during second trimester. It is not cancer but rather just swelling that happens most often between teeth because of excess plaque. They bleed easily and have a red, raw looking raspberry-like appearance. They usually disappear after your baby is born.
Limitations For Treatment :
1. Dental work while pregnancy such as cavity fillings and crowns, should be treated to reduce the chance of infection. If dental treatment is done during pregnancy, the Second Trimester is ideal. Once you reach the Third Trimester, it may be very difficult to lie on your back for an extended period of time.
3. Elective Treatment, such as teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures, should be postponed until after the birth. It is best to avoid this dental work while pregnant and avoid exposing the developing baby to any risks, even if they are minimal.
4. Routine X-Rays, typically taken, can usually be postponed until after the birth of the baby.
2.Have preventive exams and cleanings during your pregnancy.
3.Let your dentist know you are pregnant.
4.Postpone non emergency dental treatment until the second trimester or after delivery, if possible.
5.Maintain healthy circulation by keeping your legs uncrossed while you sit in the dentist’s chair.
Enjoy every bit of your Pregnancy as this is considered to be the most beautiful and important phase in a woman’s life.
Take good care and Keep Smiling
