Question: I am 14 weeks pregnant. Since past few days experiencing a tooth ache. How can I treat it at home?
Answer: Hi dear, pregnant women may be more susceptible to gum and tooth pain due to hormonal changes. You can do these simple tips to get some relief
Warm Water Rinse
Brushing and flossing are important to everyone's daily routine, but these simple self-care tips can prevent more severe dental problems for a pregnant woman.
Warm or cold compression can sometimes provide temporary relief for a toothache. A warm washcloth or water bottle can be applied to the side of the face where the pain persists. A cold cloth or pack of ice may also provide relief by numbing the area.
Question: Is it common to have tooth sensitivity as well as tooth bleeding during pregnancy?
It's due to hormonal changes and common.
Bleeding gums during pregnancy are normal. Hormonal changes lead to this. I would strongly recommend going to her dentist for regular cleans. And get a clean done now before baby comes. Keep brushing always using a soft tooth brush in circular movements. The more plaque she leaves behind the more she will get gingivitis the more her gums will bleed. So don't worry or panic seeing blood when pregnant. Just maintain a great oral hygiene routine of brushing twice and flossing once daily. And she will be fine.
