Newly Pregnant?

Your body is going through so many changes that it is more important than ever to look after your teeth. Hormone changes during pregnancy can affect your preventative care, and many pregnant women notice that their gums are red, inflamed and sometimes bleed when they brush their teeth. 

The swelling and inflamed gums are referred to as ‘pregnancy gingivitis’ and can start as soon as the second month of pregnancy. The hormone progesterone can be around 10 times higher than normal during pregnancy, affecting the body’s response to toxins as a result of plaque build-up. Women are therefore more susceptible to developing periodontal disease when these hormonal fluctuations occur.

Some women also experience a growth on their gums known as a pregnancy granuloma that are red nodules, usually found on the upper gums. While they are not dangerous, they can cause discomfort. 

Other problems which may occur include tooth erosion as a result of constant exposure to acid from severe morning sickness and dry mouth is another major complaint, but can be easily remedied by drinking plenty of water and using sugarless candies to stimulate saliva flow.

Come in and ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy during your pregnancy.

If you have loose or ill-fitting dentures, your ability to eat and speak may be negatively affected.
Dentistry has massively advanced and this traditional treatment can now be supercharged to maximise performance and reliability. We now have the ability to affix your denture to your jaw with dental implants. This treatment, known as implant over dentures or denture stabilisation, offers patients with dentures a more permanent solution and can improve quality of life significantly.
You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying put.
