PREGNANCY GINGIVITIS Among the many changes that women go through during pregnancy is the development of swollen gums that may be sore and vulnerable to bleeding. This form of gum inflammation, known as "pregnancy gingivitis," is prompted by hormonal changes that lead to increased blood flow to the gums, making them swollen, sensitive, and irritated. It should also be noted that hormonal changes during pregnancy also slow the body's response to bacteria that cause gum infections. As a result, bacteria- laden plaque is more apt to accumulate on teeth, causing them to be more susceptible to gum disease. With all this in mind, pregnant women should schedule regular visits to the dentist to preclude potential gum problems.
