Blame the pregnancy hormones for gum infections.women tend to get quite frequent teeth and gums infections during pregnancy.
Pregnancy involves lots of hormonal changes. Due to this gums become soft and spongy and tend to bleed easily if proper oral hygiene is not maintained.
1-Maintain a good oral hygiene by means of brushing, flossing, mouthwashes etc
2-Frequent snacking, this is commonly seen during pregnancy. Frequent snacks and drinks especially sweet ones can lead to tooth decay. Switch over to snacks that are low in sugar, fat & salt and high in fiber content.
3- Drinks such as water and milk are recommended. Rinse your mouth with water if you can’t brush after every snack
3- Calcium is very important for your baby’s teeth. During fourth month of pregnancy your baby’s teeth and bones begin to calcify. The calcium and phosphorous needed for this comes from the food you eat and if necessary from your bones. These minerals are best obtained by eating more dairy foods.
4-Dental procedures, certain antibiotics like Tetracycline can cause damage to your baby’s developing teeth. So it’s very important that you inform your doctor about your pregnancy. Visit your dentist for a regular check up and cleaning.
5- include lots of vitamin C in diet.vitamin C is the best for gum health.
