I just found out I am pregnant, how will this affect my mouth?

Pregnancy can affect your gums, in fact, some women who are pregnant can experience a condition known as pregnancy gingivitis where the gums become red, swollen and uncomfortable. The best way to avoid this is with thorough brushing and flossing and regular visits to the dentist for professional cleaning.
Your gums can also affect your pregnancy. People with periodontal disease (loss of the bone supporting the teeth) may be seven times more likely to have a pre-term, low birth-weight baby. If you are pregnant and concerned about your gums please book in a consultation with your dentist!
