Pregnancy, breast-feeding and your teeth

November 12, 2018 Pregnancy, breast-feeding and your teeth

Pregnancy, breast-feeding and your teeth

Hormonal changes during pregnancy and breast-feeding can result in ‘pregnancy gingivitis’ where the gums become inflamed and bleed. This can be kept under control with meticulous oral hygiene - brushing twice a day and flossing once daily. But factor in bouts of morning sickness and the general overall exhaustion many women feel, and these good hygiene habits can fall by the wayside. If a woman suffers from gum disease - gum inflammation and associated bone loss leading to loose teeth - prior to falling pregnant, this condition can worsen during pregnancy. Studies also show that women can go into pre-term labour, thereby risking the health of the baby. A nutritious, well-balanced diet and brushing and flossing daily while pregnant is a must.
