What types of dental changes are normal when I am pregnant?
For starters, it is completely normal to see a lot of bleeding when flossing and brushing. Sometimes bleeding can even occur spontaneously. This is normal. Just make sure you keep flossing and brushing those pearly whites, and we promise the bleeding will resolve as your hormones calm down.
If you are diligent about maintaining your dental hygiene, your teeth should remain in their pre-pregnancy state. We dentists don’t expect to see any drastic changes like crowding teeth or increased cavities during your pregnancy. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, call your dentist and let them take a quick peek. Peace of mind makes a happy mom, and a happy mom makes a happy baby.
