    Default Sore Gums and teeth!

    I have been suffering from sore gums today and a couple of days ago I had sore teeth.
    Is it too early for this to happen? I'm only 5 weeks 5 days.

    What are your expieriences?

    Hi Tanya,

    Sore gums can be pretty normal in pregnancy, but if they are really red, sore or bleed easily when you brush, it might be worth getting to a dentist for them to have a quick look, just to rule out gingivitis. They may recommend you have a scale and clean if you haven't had one in a while - that can help.

    Just make sure you let them know your pregnant so they don't take any x-rays.

    I generally have pretty sensitive teeth and have found that Sensodyne toothpaste works really well - my teeth have hardly been sore this pregnancy (except just talking about it makes them ache :shock: )

    Hope that helps a little

    Bel
