Pregnancy is a sensitive phase in life. A lot of hormonal changes takes place. Acids and hormones enter the system and cause some effects otherwise not visible. During this phase, it’s common to see some pregnant women with swollen and sore gums or gums that bleed. This happens due to a build-up of plaque on the teeth.
