Lactating mothers are advised to visit the dentist regularly to prevent pregnancy-related gum disease, also called gingivitis. This condition is caused by hormonal changes.

Facts about pregnancy gingivitis:

– Pregnancy increases your progesterone levels and creates a bacteria-suitable environment that leads to gum disease.

– Symptoms include redness, severe swelling, bleeding and bad odour are symptoms.

– Prevent pregnancy gingivitis by brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice daily, rinsing with mouthwash, and eating a healthy diet.

See your dentist regularly for checkups and to get teeth cleaned to prevent gum disease.
