Dental and gum diseases increase the probability of low birth weight baby by seven times. For this reason, pregnant women should pay more attention to oral care and nutrition.
During pregnancy, the amount of acid in the saliva increases and the teeth become susceptible to decay. If the mother does not take care for her oral hygiene after vomiting, which can be seen in the first few months, the risk of decay also increases. If mothers with gum problems do not pay attention to their oral care, gum problems will increase due to hormonal changes. Expectant mothers may avoid to brush their teeth if they have gum bleeding. This causes more bacteria accumulation on the teeth and causes swelling, redness and bleeding in the gums. This is called "pregnancy gingivitis". The gums are red, swollen, sensitive and bleeding. Pregnancy gingivitis usually starts at 2 months of pregnancy and reaches the highest level at 8 months.
Good nutrition during pregnancy will affect your baby’s dental health positively as well as mothers. Baby's tooth development starts from the second month of pregnancy. For healthy tooth development, nutrients rich in calcium, phosphorus and vitamins should be taken sufficiently. One liter of milk or dairy products a day fulfills this need. Expectant mothers should avoid snacks beginning from the first month of pregnancy. Any food wastes that are not removed from the mouth accelerate the formation of decays by accumulating on the teeth.
The thought of "Every pregnancy is lost a tooth of mother” is a false belief. There is no scientific evidence about that mother loses calcium from her teeth during pregnancy. The foods should be consumed that are rich for D vitamins, calcium (1200-1500 mg per day), and vitamin C and vitamin B12. If enough calcium is not available with the foods, the amount needed for the baby's growth is taken from the mother's bones. It is not calcium dissolution from the teeth.
