Swollen, Red Gums | Pregnancy Gingivitis | Stanley Dentistry

Have swollen, red, bleeding gums during pregnancy? You might be suffering from pregnancy gingivitis, inflammation of the gums that occurs especially during pregnancy. Caused mainly by hormonal changes during the first trimester, the surge in progesterone increases blood flow to the gums which can cause gums to become more sensitive, swollen and irritable.

Progesterone can also block the body’s natural response to bacteria, which can become a precursor to periodontal infections. Plaque is easily built up on the teeth and gums during pregnancy and makes your smile more susceptible to periodontal disease and gingivitis. If you have any concerns about your smile, please come visit us in our office and we’ll be happy to assist you in caring for your gums and teeth!
