Pregnancy gingivitis and dental hygiene

Pregnancy Gingivitis is caused by P gingivalis (as well as other bacteria), a type of bacterium that thrives in the presence of hormones.

.

Bleeding gums during pregnancy isn't because we are increasing our blood volume: it's because our immune system (aka inflammatory response) reacts to the presence of this type of bacterium.

.

Gingivitis not only effects our health but our babies health too. It can lead to preterm and low term birth weights.

.

It's so vital to take care of ourselves during this significant time period, including our dental health.

.

As dental hygiene providers, we treat Pregnancy Gingivitis so come see us at Polished Dental Hygiene!
