Pregnancy and Your Oral Health

Pregnancy is a wonderful time of life! Mom’s need to make sure they get the necessary vitamins such as A, C, D, calcium, protein and nutrients necessary for the good development of baby’s teeth which form around the second trimester. Meticulous home care is very important during this time as one of the common side effects of increased progesterone levels can be gingivitis. Gingivitis is characterized by red, puffy, bleeding gums.
