hello I am Ashfa, here I have swollen gums and abscesses for about 4 months. I have been to the dentist and every time I go there I am always given medicine and my teeth have a very big hole, because I am pregnant the doctor doesn’t want to pull out my cavities, and until now my gums are still swollen until they appear protruding on the cheeks but it doesn’t hurt anymore, I am ashamed because my cheeks look lame and laughed at by people, I asked for advice / ways to deal with these swollen gums. thank you

Hello dear Ashfa,

Toothache during pregnancy should not be underestimated. Tooth and gum disease in the mother can have an impact on the health condition of the baby in the womb, for example:

babies have low birth weight babies born preterm (premature) Teeth and gum disease should be checked by a dentist. Dental care and medication during pregnancy is most recommended in the second to early third trimester. This is due to the following considerations:

The first trimester is a period of growth and development of the baby in the womb, you should avoid medical procedures / actions that might interfere with this process. The end of the third trimester has the potential to increase premature births. . Generally, doctors will prescribe antibiotics and painkillers that are safe to consume during pregnancy.

Unfortunately you did not clearly state your current gestational age. For that, we recommend that you:

brush your teeth regularly, at least twice a day, especially after eating and before going to bed, choose a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth slowly. given the doctor remembers that doctor who best understands your current health condition
if needed, you can also consult an obstetrician who usually examines you, especially regarding the condition of the fetus in the womb. Hopefully this is useful
