I have a history of some cavities being patched, but all this time my gums are fine. R n r nThank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is true that at certain times, women are more susceptible to dental and gum problems. Actually not only during pregnancy, but also during menstruation. This is because in the two periods there was an increase in the body's hormones which also made blood flow to the oral cavity increased and made infection easier to occur.
But of course, it doesn't have to be that every pregnant woman has this problem. Conditions of pregnancy and menstruation only increase a person's risk, but this is not something that is mandatory and definitely passed. Therefore, it is recommended that you check your teeth every 6 months or if there are complaints that you think are disturbing, and maintain oral health by regularly brushing your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, dental floss and mouthwash. So, hopefully answering your question.
