Can Pregnancy effect your Dental Health?

Pregnancy can affect the gums more commonly than the teeth themselves, and this is through the process of what we call hormonal gingivitis, so it presents is exactly the same as if someone had gingivitis through lack of cleaning. So, in terms of the gums, bleeding and the gums being a little bit puffy and inflamed. There’s no real way to rectify the situation because the hormones are associated with the pregnancy. However, it can be managed through the same way as gingivitis. So the regular brushing, flossing and professional cleans.
