Did you know that pregnant women might be more vulnerable to gum disease and tooth erosion? Fortunately, with a small bit of help from our office, you can keep your oral cavity healthy even during pregnancy. Here’s a tiny bit of info on gingivitis and why it occurs in women having children so regularly; we hope that you enjoy it and that it helps you during this enjoyable time!

Gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums also referred to as gum disease, is a rampant condition, even outside of pregnancy; we treat gingivitis on a daily basis. Expectant women regularly experience gingivitis, also known as “pregnancy gingivitis,” because they are consuming more food than usual, subsequently leaving more leftovers on their gums and allowing bacteria additional chances to make plaque, tartar and an eventual infection of the gums. If Dr. Clayton M. Hansen sees that you’re experiencing pregnancy gingivitis, they’ll probably suggest additional or more frequent cleanings to aid you to combat the gingivitis. With our aid, you’ll be able to keep your teeth healthy, helping your baby grow stronger.
