MY MOTHER LOST TEETH WHEN SHE WAS PREGNANT. WILL THAT AFFECT ME?
There is no reason why a Pregnancy should cause you to lose your teeth unless you ignore them totally
“Morning sickness” may make Oral Hygiene more difficult
More frequent snacking will also encourage greater bacterial growth
During pregnancy the gums become more sensitive to bacterial irritation and may show an increased Inflammation response
Periodontitis can show a family tendency
Regular dental checks for periodontitis are even more important for those at higher risk for periodontitis
