Pregnancy health tips:10 ways to BUMP UP your tooth care

Earlier this month Hollywood actress Kate Hudson, who is expecting a baby girl with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, revealed on Instagram that her third pregnancy has been the most challenging due to the intense morning sickness she has experienced.

She wrote: “They say girls make you sicker and that, for me, has been the truth. It has been interesting so far.”

About 50 per cent of women will experience some mild gingivitis (gum disease) during pregnancy, causing the gums to become inflamed and bleed.

Left unchecked, bacteria can build up in the mouth and may enter the bloodstream, causing infection which can lead to periodontal disease.

This is a serious gum infection which destroys the fibres that attach the teeth to the gums and the bones that hold the teeth in the mouth.
