Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums and pregnancy


Avatar f tn You need to visit your dentist and ask for corsodyl daily toothpaste and get free miniature toothpastes or you can also buy this from any supermarket or chemist. This toothpaste is protection for healthy gums and really helps during pregnancy. Hope this helps.
7879163 tn?1411591644 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn Im I the only one who has very sore gums during pregnancy ugggggg all I had was one bbq wing and had to due ti soreness of my entire mouth
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I got what they called pregnancy gingivitis with my second child. It was bad, my gums were sore, swollen, and when I would touch them they would start bleeding. I even scheduled an appointment to see my dentist and they wanted to numb my whole mouth and basically use a water pressure underneath my gums I was like NO THANK YOU. I noticed that my gums got better when I cut out sugars.
Avatar f tn 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. Are they all related? Anything I can do to ease any of the symptoms? My dr let's me take Claritin once a day for the post nasal drip but it doesn't help much! Thanks ladies!!!
405370 tn?1332206110 This is my first time carrying a pregnancy this far and today I noticed something strange. I was eating an apple and afterwards my gums were sore and swollen. I brush and floss regularly so I was quite surprised. Is this a pregnancy thing??
Avatar n tn I had sore gums and they bled quite often... also had nose bleeds all the time... Ugh! Wonderful pregnancy symptoms.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn You may have 'pregnancy gingivitis'. It's a sort of gum disease you can get while pregnant but will go away after you've had your baby. I have it and it' my teeth and gums being.super sensitive during pregnancy. y.
3058745 tn?1351112728 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.
Avatar n tn My gums are very sore and at times bleed when I brush my teeth. It seems that they are sore but it goes away and then comes back again. Not sure if this is an infection??? What else I can use besides tooth paste and mouthwash to help them??? How did I get this I brush my teeth all the time???
Avatar f tn my gums were swollen and would bleed easily they told me its normal and to just make sure I take good care of my teeth and gums especially during pregnancy because your more susceptible to gum disease and cavities.
1181036 tn?1367368640 So I'm not really "charting"my fertility signs again yet, just cervical mucus mainly. But I'm pretty sure I ovulated around the 25 to 29th of December. Well, about 3 days ago I noticed my legs were REALLY sore. 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?
Avatar n tn For over a year I have been experiencing sore and sometimes inflamed and swollen gums. I have seen both my dentist and hygienist and we have been unable to solve the problem or what is causing it. The pain is now there more often than not now, whereas before it was intermittent. I have not managed to pin point what may cause the symptoms.
Avatar n tn It was then time for my appointment and again my dentist packed my tooth as well and it felt better but now the medicine has worn off and again its bothering me again. I also have like two blisters that have formed also maybe from the stitches not sure. But is this suppose to take so long to heal and if so what can I do to speed up the process like buy something to put on the site like a numbing agent or something.
Avatar f tn I take extremely good care of my teeth so I was surprised when I discovered that the top right side of my gums and my bottom right side of my gums (exact spot), appear to be irritated and sore. I went to bed knowing that the bottom was irritated, but I thought it might just be a canker sore, and when I woke up, the top was irritated too. Any ideas of why this happened or what it could be a sign of? Thank you in advance!

Avatar n tn The one on the upper right has cracked and chipped twice over the past 7 months.The tooth has been digging into my gums and is uncomfortable to open my mouth too wide. Recently I have a frequent headaches and sore throat that also feels tight by the adam's apple. Is it common to have these side effects with chipped teeth?
316002 tn?1246553137 My teeth are LESS sensitive to cold and hot then they were before I was pregnant. I think it is part of pregnancy cause I usually have very sensitive teeth.
