During pregnancy the gums are more susceptible to disease and as a result often can result in bleeding and swollen gums. In order to improve the health of gums it is important to maintain oral hygiene teeth and gums while pregnant.

Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase the risk of developing gum disease, which in turn can affect the health of your developing baby.

Pregnancy hygiene will ensure the removal of plaque and tartar to prevent gum disease from occurring during pregnancy. Although always important, during pregnancy, this is vital as gum disease (which an be caused by plaque and tartar), if severe, can lead to blood pressure related issues in pregnancy and has also been linked to pre-eclampsia.

Pregnancy hygiene will reduces risk of harm to your developing baby, which can be caused by severe cases of gum disease or periodontal disease. If it is linked with higher blood pressure for the mother, this can also negatively affect baby. It will also reduce risk of pre-eclampsia ( a condition affecting some pregnant women), which has been linked with severe gum disease or periodontal disease. This condition begins around 20 weeks of pregnancy.
