Discussion About The Effects Of Pregnancy On Oral Teeth By Dr Priya Verma.

Pregnancy is a fragile phase and definitely not an easy one. You go through numerous hormonal and body changes during pregnancy. One of the complications caused by pregnancy is nausea and vomiting, which can affect your oral health and damage the tissues in your mouth.

Therefore, in this video, Dr Priya Verma at Smile Zone Dental Speciality Centre explains in detail the effects of pregnancy on oral tissues and the tips to take care of your oral hygiene to make your gums strong and clean. Pregnancy is a wonderful phase of a woman’s life, but with the changes in the body, several changes in the mouth can also be seen during this time. The hormonal changes in the body cause gum inflammation and bleeding. These conditions should not be ignored and treated on time as the babies get affected by these conditions, resulting in a low-weight baby and premature birth. 


Vomiting due to morning sickness damages your enamel. Therefore, the doctor recommends rinsing your mouth with plain water after vomiting. You may think that brushing after vomiting is the ideal option to choose, but brushing too much can cause further damage to your teeth.
