Hi i woke up a couple days ago with a sore mouth, its hard to explain where it is..(if u put your tongue behind your front top teeth and the bit of gum there on the top) well it sort of feels really swollen, i woke up this morning and its got worse, its now double the size! It hurts to eat anything as it catches on it and even drinking hot or cold drinks hurts
I have been to the dentist...and there is something called "pregnancy gingavitis" that some women may get. You're gums can get really red and sensitive, or bleed. I had it for a little while...but it's went away. She gave me tips to do. Basically I brush twice a day, rinse with mouthwash, floss (every night) and then I use a perio aid to go around my gums.
If it's something that keeps bothering you, check with your dentist
Hi hun, I was at the dentists at 5dpo, didn't know if I was pregnant yet, but I kinda felt it already. Told him I was waiting for my so he recommended me teeth cleaning to remove all plague under the gums and polish the teeth.
Did a check (without x-ray) to see if i need fillings. He told me that pregnant women with gingivitis has much higher risks at periodontitis at its linked to pre-term birth.
So, he gave me like three items to bring home with:
1. A special florid mouth rinse to rinse after I puke. Never brush teeth after puking, he reminded me.
2. Special florid gel to use once a week to harden enamel. Enamel hard = less plague attack.
3. Special sonic electric toothbrush from Oral-B for the hard to reach places like wisdom tooth...
So i got everything checked at 5dpo, got my 4 days later at 9 dpo, so far so good, gums and teeth are in good condition. But he said if my gums DO bleed and get swollen, its a sign of bacteria and plague so he recommends that I go for another professional teeth cleaning session if the bleeding and inflammation doesn't go away. Its just manual cleaning, no bleach or chemicals involved, so very safe.
According to my health insurance plan and my "Mutterpass", I Should go for at least 2 dental check-ups during pregnancy.
If I refused to go, and something really bad happens and the health insurance finds out its linked to dental problems; health insurance can refuse to pay for further treatments....
