When you are pregnant

Regular consultations to the dentist are of utmost importance when you are pregnant.

The natural changes in your hormone balance during pregnancy may cause sensitive and easy bleeding gums.

A good rule is to brush your teeth after consuming sugar, for example candy and soft drinks. Over all taking extra good care of your teeth is important, not only during pregnancy.


Remember to tell your dentist that you are pregnant. It is important in situations where local anaesthetics may be used or fillings changed. You can always ask your dentist for advice.


Gums are often sensitive and bleed more easily during pregnancy. You can get more guidance in dental care during pregnancy at your dentists.
