Nine Months : Looking after your teeth

Your gums tend to become spongy in pregnancy. They are also more prone to infection. Tender gums may cause you to have a pink toothbrush, a term used to describe the bleeding gums while brushing.

Make an appointment with the dentist and remember that dental care is free for pregnant women and also till your child is one year old.

X-rays are not advised in pregnancy, hence you must notify your dentist beforehand that you are pregnant.

Remember that you need not panic if you had a bit too much alcohol before discovering you were pregnant. There is a very small possibility that this drinking binge would have harmed your baby but going forward, remember that your baby is too special for you to take a risk. If you have any worries, do consult your midwife or doctor.
