What is it? 

50 to 70 percent of pregnant women experience gingivitis while pregnant. Pregnancy gingivitis is a mild inflammation of the gums due to plaque biofilm buildup which include red and sore gums that bleed when brushed or floss.

How to treat and prevent pregnancy gingivitis?

  • Use a non-alcoholic mouthwash such as Closys, that is very soothing for your tender gums
  • Make sure to see your hygienist every 4-6 months
