Bleeding gums

Like the rest of your body, your gums are receiving more blood flow during pregnancy. This can cause your gums to swell or become softer. As a result, they may bleed a little when you brush your teeth.

■ Prevention and self-care for bleeding gums

Don't neglect your dental care during pregnancy. Brushing, flossing and regular dental exams and cleaning are important. Make sure you're getting enough vitamin C from foods or your vitamin supplement because this vitamin helps keep your tissues strong.

■ When to seek medical help for bleeding gums

If bleeding is heavy or accompanied by pain, redness or inflammation, make an appointment soon with your dentist to check for infection and tell your health care provider about the problem.
