Are you in the first trimester of your pregnancy? If so, take special precautions for your oral health. 1) Changes in your hormone level can cause puffy gums and inflammation. This is called pregnancy gingivitis. 2) Use bland toothpaste to avoid morning sickness. 3) Use a soft and a small toothbrush to prevent vomiting. 4) Use a fluoride mouthwash to prevent decay formation. 5) Do not brush immediately after vomiting, wait for a few minutes depending on the nausea. If you continue to feel more discomfort or pain or irritation in your teeth, then make an appointment with #AcharyaDental to examine further.
