Dental Care in pregnancy is very important. The high levels of
progesterone and estrogen in the body at this time increases the blood flow throughout the body, including the gums. This can lead to softening of the gums increasing the susceptibility to tooth and gum infection.
The increased blood supply to the gums can cause them to swell up and bleed. It also makes the gums more vulnerable to bacteria in the mouth leading to infections.
