    Morning ladies,

    So this morning I have ended up with a sore/sensitive tooth - I never have teeth problems since having my wisdom teeth removed :mad:

    I know that gum problems are common in pregnancy.

    Anyone else a sufferer? Any tips?

    I currently use a sensitive mouthwash but a whitening toothpaste. I should grab some sensodyne probably x

    I had this in my first tri too. Some of the gums around my back teeth were sore and the teeth in them even felt a little wobbly. I actually brush twice a day, use mouth wash twice a day and floss so there was not much more I could do there.
    This might be a coincidence, but I went out and got some high calcium yogurts and I have one a day after work. I've not had teeth or gum problems since. Could be a complete coincidence though!

    Do you use a soft bristle tooth brush too? And perhaps use from mouthwash x

    I use an electric toothbrush, always brush twice a day too. I'll try switching to sensodyne & get some of those calcium yoghurts to try.
    I'm always fine with my teeth and I go to the dentist regulary too. Typical :( x

    Your gums get extra sensitive in pregnancy. I find the best thing is to brush them extra well with a soft toothbrush. An electric toothbrush can help too.

    Mouthwash is good at making your breath smell good but it is actually really bad for your gums so be cautious about using it daily.

    This exactly. My teeth were affected loads last time because I vommed loads. Thank god for no sickness this time.

    Only really my teeth with fillings have gotten more sensitive, but they do decay quicker and easier in pregnancy due to hormones.

    Ive pasted a link which is quite useful :) :

    Oh at least you have a whole day to gear yourself up for a night of vomming, It can be a bit hard to digest on just opening your eyes to a head down the pan. I used to wake gagging. It was awful.

    Hope your teefies are better soon.
