What Is PREGNANCY GINGIVITIS?

Women who are pregnant should have a periodontal exam as part of prenatal care. Statistics have found that only half of expecting mothers receive proper dental care. 


"Pregnancy gingivitis" is the swelling/inflammation of the gums that many pregnant women suffer, especially early on in their pregnancy. 

 It is caused by a bacterial film that grows on the teeth, resulting in plaque buildup.
