Pregnancy does not automatically damage the teeth. It can lead to dental problems like gum disease and increased risk of tooth decay. During pregnancy, hormones level differs. It can affect pregnant lady by responding to plaque (the layer of germs on your teeth).
The old wives' tale that warns a woman to expect a lost tooth for every baby is false. If the mother does not intake proper amount of calcium during pregnancy, her bones will provide the calcium which her growing baby need instead of the teeth. This calcium loss will be shown up just after breastfeeding is stopped. By maintaining the proper hygiene at home and by the professional help from your dentist, teeth should be remained healthy throughout pregnancy. By research it has been found that there is a link between gum disease in pregnant women and premature birth with low birth weight. Premature babies may risk a range of health conditions including cerebral palsy and may face problem with eyesight and hearing.
It can be suggested that up to 18 out of every 100 premature births may be triggered by periodontal disease, which is a chronic gum infection. Appropriate dental treatment for the expectant mother may help to decrease the risk of premature birth.
