uring the 9 months of pregnancy you will experience numerous physiological changes that can affect the health of the gums and teeth causing the appearance or worsening of diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis.
The gums become much more sensitive and are prone to swelling, bleeding and
inflammation, even in the presence of little bacterial plaque. In this case we speak of gingivitis
pregnant, a condition that usually begins around the 2-3 month of gestation and can get worse until the time of delivery. But not only that, if you suffer from nausea, vomiting or reflux.
Beware of erosion of dental enamel and increased risk of caries.
Scientific data confirm that the mother with caries has a certain probability of passing the bacteria responsible for this disease to her child and the presence of periodontitis (chronic gum disease) increases the risk of premature births.
