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.

More so, the hormonal changes that are common to pregnancy can make gums susceptible to plaque which leads to inflammation and bleeding. We can call this gum disease or in simple terms, pregnancy gingivitis. Some other dental problems may also strike women during this phase, and a superior oral care is required.

One of the most common problems affecting the elderly is dementia. It is often mistakenly seen as a disease, rather than a collection of symptoms. Those symptoms occur when the brain is damaged and that can happen due to different diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Depending on what caused the damage, people experience various symptoms of dementia.

What is also important to know is that dementia usually develops gradually, which makes it very difficult to be recognized early on. Another problem is that many symptoms are identical to those that aging people experience, such as mild forgetfulness, but that doesn’t mean that they suffer from dementia.

Furthermore, dementia symptoms also include impairment in thought and communication, which could be symptoms of a number of conditions, which means that diagnosing dementia and being right about it is not easy. Here are some of the signs that can help you realize whether your aging partner, family member or friend might be suffering from dementia.
