Pregnancy: Gum Disease

When your pregnant your blood flow increases which can cause your gums to swell and bleed, leaving them at increased risk of gingivitis. The rise in your hormones can also make your gums and teeth more sensitive to bacteria also causing gingivitis.

Morning sickness is also a contributing factor. Vomit contains stomach acid which can eat away at your gums and teeth, making your mouth very sensitive.
