1. When pregnant women have tooth decay, they are 2-3 times more likely to have premature birth and miscarriage than women with good oral health

Many scientists around the world have proved that: In case pregnant women have tooth decay, which will increase the risk of miscarriage and premature birth by 2-3 times, will also be prone to preeclampsia, and low birth weight babies (under 2.5kg). In case the pregnant mother has gingivitis or periodontitis, some harmful bacteria will appear, and they move from the oral cavity to the placenta, which will increase the physiological concentration in the amniotic fluid, thereby causing labor, premature birth and premature birth, low birth weight.
During pregnancy, the mother’s gingivitis will also cause the amount of calcium absorbed by the fetus from the mother to be reduced, which is the cause of the baby becoming underweight and unhealthy.

2. When a pregnant woman has tooth decay, there is an increased risk of tooth decay for her baby right from birth

Because the baby’s teeth are formed in the womb, enamel and dentin develop to cover the tooth germ. Bacteria that cause tooth decay will not be in the baby’s mouth as soon as it is born, but in fact, pathogens will be spread from the mother’s mouth or those around her through the mother kissing the baby, feeding the baby food (the such as straws, chopsticks – spoons used by adults).

1. Hormonal changes in the body

Usually, in the second month of pregnancy, the hormones estrogen and progesterone increase rapidly, increasing blood flow to the gums, causing gingivitis worse than normal. Problems at this time are toothache and bleeding gums when brushing… these problems can be even worse in the 7th, and 8th months; and gradually decreased by the 9th month of pregnancy.

2. Meal plan

In the first month of pregnancy, morning sickness can cause pregnant women to vomit and crave sweet and sour foods … more than before pregnancy, the fact that pregnant women eat a lot of glucose-containing foods is also one of the causes. So tooth decay is higher during pregnancy.

3. Lack of calcium

When our body lacks calcium, it will mobilize calcium from the teeth. This leads to many dental problems, including weak roots, irritated gums, and brittle and decayed teeth.

4. Reduce saliva secretion

Decreased salivation is an issue in which the salivary glands are atrophied – lost function, leading to the inability or restriction of saliva production, making the mouth dry, and causing dental diseases.
