A time of changes

The earlier observation, that every child would cost the mother a tooth is no longer valid.

During pregnancy, hormonal changes occur in a woman’s body. Unfortunately, this natural hormonal transformation usually has adverse consequences for the health of the teeth and gums. The connective tissues relax and the gums react with a higher risk of inflammation. A so-called pregnancy gingivitis must be dentally treated so that it does turn into a parodontitis. Scientific studies show that a parodontitis increases the risk of a miscarriage.

Have your teeth examined in the first months of your pregnancy and take advantage of regular professional dental cleanings during the whole pregnancy.
