Were you aware that pregnant women are perhaps more at risk for gum disease and tooth decay? Fortunately, with a tiny amount of help from our practice, you can keep your mouth clean even during pregnancy. Here’s a little bit of information on gingivitis and why it occurs in women having children so regularly; we really hope that you enjoy it and that it helps you during this special time!
Gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums also referred to as periodontal disease, is a common occurrence, even outside of pregnancy; we treat gingivitis on a daily basis. Expectant women commonly experience gingivitis, also known as “pregnancy gingivitis,” since they are consuming more food than usual, leaving extra leftovers on their gums and providing bacteria extra chances to fashion plaque, tartar and an eventual infection of the gums. If Dr. John Freemon sees that you’re experiencing pregnancy gingivitis, they’ll probably suggest extra or more frequent cleanings to support you to fight the gingivitis. With our assistance, you’ll be able to keep your pearly whites healthy, helping your baby grow stronger.
