Your teeth and gums may be affected during pregnancy, with oral tissues displaying an increased response to bacterial plaque, because of increased levels of oestrogen and progesterone. These may affect your immune response to bacteria and result in gum inflammations such as ‘pregnancy gingivitis’, which usually settles down after the birth.
Morning sickness can lead to vomiting, which can have an erosive effect on your teeth surface. A check-up during your pregnancy will maintain good oral health and if treatment is needed, this is best carried out during the second trimester.
