Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums and pregnancy


I'm 34+6 and yesterday all of the sudden in between two of my teeth started hurting every time I ate anything. Now today my gums, just where they meet my teeth hurt so bad and it just makes my whole mouth hurt! I've heard that women can get swollen gums during pregnancy, but it never happened with the last two and just surprised me at how fast it came on. Anyone else having this problem? And tips to help it?
I'll be 27 weeks tomorrow and he said this is best time to go. Bc early pregnancy dentist visit might affect your baby and late pregnancy might bring you to early labor. If you can, get a superficial examination, no X rays and get your softer brush. Floss every night at least.

Hello, Such sore swollen gums can be due to gingivitis,infections,malnutrition and vitamin C deficiency,pregnancy or sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash . Take vitamin C supplements for some days and change your toothpaste brand and avoid using mouthwashes if your swollen gums are caused by sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash.Also have good oral hygiene. If the symptoms persist then pls consult a dentist and get gingivitis ruled out. Hope it helps.

You could also try peroxide and water, its a natural debridement agent, it will bubble and help the inflammation of the gums and get any food particles you may have missed brushing and flossing. You swish with one part peroxide one part water just as you would Listerine. As an added bonus it does help to whiten teeth some.
I am 14 weeks with my first baby and recently started having sore, bleeding gums and one ear pops all the time. I have also had sinus issues the entire time I have been pregnant.

I went to my dentist and she said it's just the pregnancy. It should go away after pregnancy. But it's so annoying and sometimes my gums are so sore!
Could i still be pregnant if i just have bleeding and sore gums! I been feeling cramping like im getting my period! is that another syptom?
That is totally a pregnancy symptom! I'm 30 weeks pregnant and have been having bleeding gums since pretty early on. Both when I floss, and even when I'm just brushing (and I'm not brushing hard). I had this with my first pregnancy as well - it's completely normal, something to do with the increased blood volume/flow.
This toothpaste is protection for healthy gums and really helps during pregnancy. Hope this helps.
I spit it out and washed with water immediately. I have minor bleeding gums,and I am afraid that the milk may have touched my bleeding gums and infected it while I was spitting. I became all paranoid at around 10 days after the exposure and developed a sore throat. It went away in 5 days. I went to talk to the lady later. She said she didn't have anything but she didn't sound assuring. She also said she had a 9 month old baby.
I am 32weeks4 days and my gums did bleed and i had sore boobs as well but u should test or go to a clinic then u will know the truth.
I had a cavity with my son, and in my early pregnancy it hurt SO bad I had to get an antibiotic for it, also sore or sensitive gums, and bleeding gums are common during pregnancy.

Your gums have become irritated it's common in pregnancy, I'd recommend seeing a dentist and just having everything looked at.
Don't be surprised if your gums are sore this week. Another week after that my legs were cramping, and yes... that email stated something about leg cramps. It seems that I am gaining weight and I DO look PG. But there is no movement. It's all probably in my head. I want a baby so bad. For this month, my big O day is the 9th. DH 'wasn't up to it' last night, probably will be tired tonight and the 9th... So there goes this month's chance. It's beginning to look as likely as the lottery.
I'm 19 and its my first pregnancy too I'm 13 weeks and 4days so I'm ere if u wanna talk x
I went to the dentist a few weeks ago when I was 20 weeks and my gums were swollen. They said thats common in pregnancy and should go away after the baby is born. They said to make sure you floss&use mouth wash.
I have an abcessed tooth, a lot of cavities, no gum disease (although I have a sore on my gum since may),bad breath and a partial root canal. My first pregnancy my daughter was born early and under weight (1lbs 15oz @ 29wks) and we just lost our second daughter @ 24wks this past may. Each pregnancy the placenta stops working correctly after 20wks. I see several docs and no one knows why this happens. I have fibroids and they believe they maybe the issue, however I am concerned its my mouth.
(of course I was a b cup at most after pregnancy so it's easier to walk around with no shirt being little) Mine were so bad....cracked and scabbed was really gross. My husband would see me and go 'oh that looks like it hurts' freaken kidding. I almost quit nursing. I talked to the dr about it. I trusted him, he was my family Dr and My DDs pediatrician....He said try and stick it out another week....and within a week or two, about 3-4 weeks after got better...
I am sorry about your miscarriage and totally understand.. It was my first pregnancy too and i was devasted, and still am...I am doing the same thing and not letting anyone know that I think about it and worry... I don't want to put pressure on my husband and I! Your story is encouraging and inspiring.. it gives me hope! Thanks so much.. Are you having a boy or girl?
Three weeks ago my boyfriend and me were standing and he was on a boner and his penis was touching my vagina. I had a thin nickers on but was very wet and he was moving my nickers but only slightly. I know there was probably pre *** but he turned away when ejaculating. i was also on my period. i usually get a period every 25-30 days.
Not just like sore muscles but a real deep kind of sore, especially around my knees and hips. It threw me off because I haven't felt this before. Also, my gums became really sore around the same time. Any idea if this is ovulation related? My other thought was pregnancy symptoms (I had sex 24th Dec but the condom broke!). I wasn't really thinking anything of it until the other day it just all started adding up-- the sore legs, gums, and even heartburn.
