Why Bleeding Gums During Pregnancy Should Not Be Ignored

First things first, the Diamond Spring Dental team would like to express our sincere congratulations on your new baby! We understand that you may be quite busy preparing for your child’s arrival — from baby clothes to redesigning the nursery room.

However, we would like to point out that regular dental visits should be also on top of our priority list when you’re expecting, particularly when you’re starting to exhibit signs of gum disease. Read on below to learn why!

The Hormones Has to Do With It

Bleeding gums during pregnancy actually has to do with increased hormone levels. This condition can be exacerbated with too much buildup of plaque. By and large, gum problems during pregnancy arises around the second or third month and tends to worsen as the pregnancy progresses. While the gum problem itself  will most likely disappear once you’ve given birth, it is best not to ignore the condition.

In fact, it is important that you talk to your doctor about how it can be prevented or reduced in severity because of the following reasons:

  • One in five premature births in the USA has been linked to pregnant women with severe gum disease.
  • Pregnant women with gum disease have also been found out to give birth to low birth weight babies.
  • There has been a positive association between periodontal disease in women and pre-eclampsia, a dangerous complication that could result from extensively high blood pressure and excessive levels of protein in the urine during pregnancy.

Keep Us in the Loop When You’re Expecting

As much as you keep your general doctor and OB-gyn in the loop when you’re pregnant, we also want you to do the same with us as your dental care provider. So have you already made that appointment to see us?

Get in touch with us today by calling us at 973.542.2742or by filling out this contact form. We look forward to your visit!
