Overview
The news of pregnancy can be both exciting and challenging. During the times of pregnancies you need to take care of your body the best and so is the child inside your womb.

Unfortunately, a number of pregnant women tend to neglect their oral health simply because of their other concerns during the pregnancy times. But this is the very juncture when taking care of your oral health becomes very much vital. Owing to the hormonal changes found in the body, the pregnant women experience a wide range of oral health concerns. These often tend to check over the second month of pregnancy and thus continue until delivery. Let’s check the changes that are found in your mouth that you tend to experience during the pregnancy as under:

Increased Risk for Gingivitis

As per the reports, there are two hormones that are being responsible for the changes found in the oral health during the phase of pregnancy. These include estrogen and progesterone. The increased amount of levels found in these hormones can simply lead to increased amount of risks for gingivitis. This is due to the fact that these hormones can cause your body to simply react in a more aggressive fashion to plaque that are found in your mouth that tend to create inflammation along with other symptoms of gum disease. Having several checkups during the pregnancy is really important. As per research studies, the pregnancy women are seen having gingivitis are more often keen to give birth to a number of premature babies along with low birth weight. Though a number of dental checkup simply feels like the last thing you found over your list, it is vital to keep your teeth very much healthy during the phase of pregnancy.

Enamel Damage

A number of women are seen experiencing some amount of nausea during the phase of pregnancy though only half of the people are seen experiencing the vomiting. The changes found in your oral bacteria in addition to the morning sickness can cause you some increased amount of acidity found in your mouth that tend to damage your tooth enamel. Your mouth is then exposed to gastric acid in case if you are experiencing the morning sickness that can tend to cause enamel erosion. If you are experiencing the morning sickness during the pregnancy then rinsing with water can ask you for help. Having water with loads of baking soda can be a better option to neutralize the acid. But at the same time you need to brush to avoid the vomiting thing. The acid you have in your enamel can weak and make the brush things simple to brush away. In case if you vomit, you need to wait around half an hour to brush.

More Prone to Cavities

Due to enamel damage, the increased of acidity in mouth is felt along with pregnancy cravings hence pregnancy women tend to have more cavities. This is also true due to the lack of attention women tend to give to their teeth during the phase of pregnancy. Your body is seen nourishing your baby, hence you need to care the best of you. Your dentist can help in defining if you have any cavities or if you are enamel is seen getting damaged.

Benign Oral Tumors

Around 5 percent of pregnant women are seen experiencing oral tumor during the phase of pregnancy. These can be of 2 cm in width and are often outside of the gums. These lesions are due to the result of hormonal imbalances, which women are seen experiencing during this phase. Though these can be harmless but you may need to treat the same as they can be painful or you tend to lose your baby as well.

Final words

Considering the above issues, it is often good idea to visit a dentist before you end up making the conditions bad to worse. Visiting your dentist at least once in your phase of pregnancy, especially during the second month, as this is the very time when a majority of women notice these problems.
