What Causes Pregnancy Gingivitis?
Even if you are taking really good care of your teeth, being pregnant can put you at risk of gingivitis. Hormonal changes can cause you to have more sensitive gums that are quicker to bleed. With the increase of progesterone in your body especially into the second and third trimester, you are vulnerable to having gum issues.
If Pregnancy Gingivitis Goes Untreated
If you let your gingivitis go without treatment, you are at risk of worsening symptoms. Gingivitis can turn into full-blown periodontitis gum disease which can result in the loosening of your teeth. Teeth can eventually fall out if you do not receive any treatment.
We know that for women with severe and prolonged morning sickness, it can be very difficult to take care of their teeth at home. It can be challenging to brush and floss without triggering vomiting. It can be an uphill battle to keep up with your oral health.
