Healthy Mouth, Healthy Baby - Part II
March 10, 2014

Earlier, we wrote Part I of a post about awaiting the arrival of your new baby, and some of the risks of your oral health. There are two other oral health "red flags" to be aware of during your pregnancy.

Sensitive Teeth

Some women experience morning sickness including vomiting during their pregnancy, which on its own is unpleasant, but the side effects could be even worse. The acid in vomit can cause the enamel of your teeth to erode. The enamel erosion could cause you to have sensitive teeth as well as be more prone to tooth decay.

To help prevent this erosion, we recommend drinking water to flush your teeth and waiting at least 15-30 minutes after vomiting before brushing your teeth. This allows time for the acid in your mouth to subside and be washed from your teeth with water and saliva, helping you avoid "brushing off" the enamel.

Pregnancy Tumors

Some women experience pregnancy tumors. These puffy areas of the gums are typically non-cancerous, but can be painful or uncomfortable for you. Pregnancy tumors are inflammatory reactions to an irritant like plaque, and can bleed and become unsightly to some women, causing them to refrain from eating, smiling and talking.

It is very important to see your dentist while you are pregnant. Your Lake Pointe Marietta dentist will be able to ensure that your teeth remain healthy, as well as determine if you are prone to or suffering from any pregnancy induced oral health issues.
