You are pregnant, your oral health is all the more important as it has an impact on you and your baby.

In fact, dental and periodontal infections can have consequences on the growth of your baby and on the risk of premature birth.

It is therefore very important to consult for a dental check-up during your pregnancy; The best is as soon as possible, since some treatments should preferably be carried out during the 2nd trimester.

In addition, pregnancy changes your hormones, which increases the inflammatory reaction of your gums; They are very reactive on contact with dental plaque and tartar, they become very red and swollen, your gums bleed when brushing and they are painful. It's gingivitis.

Treatment consists of descaling and the daily use of toothpaste, mouthwashes and toothbrush adapted to this problem.

This "hyper-reactivity" of your gum can cause it to grow excessively locally, still under the effect of hormonal changes during pregnancy. This small ball of gum, which thus generally grows between 2 teeth, is called "epulis". This epulis is completely harmless and without any risk for your teeth; it will regress on its own after your pregnancy. If it gets too big, and it prevents you from brushing your teeth properly, or if it becomes aesthetically embarrassing, we can remove it at the dental office.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Inform us of your pregnancy as soon as you become aware of it so that we can adapt our prescriptions and our treatments.
