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.
