About half of pregnant women have swollen, red, tender gums that bleed when flossed or brushed. This gum inflammation is pregnancy gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease. Pregnancy gingivitis is unlikely to be harmful to you or your baby, especially if you practice good dental hygiene. If you have any concerns about your oral health during pregnancy, consult your dentist.

Acidic foods and drinks can cause enamel erosion - the gradual dissolving of the tooth enamel. The lower the pH number, the more acidic the product. Anything with a pH value lower than 5.5 may cause enamel erosion. 'Alkalis' have a high pH number and can cancel out the acid effects of sugars.

Chewing gum makes your mouth produce more saliva, which helps to cancel out the acid in your mouth after eating or drinking. It has been proven that using sugar-free chewing gum after meals can prevent #tooth #decay. However, it is important to use only sugar-free gum, as ordinary chewing gum contains sugar and therefore may damage your teeth.

Tooth decays is a result of poor oral health and is preventable. There are bacteria in the mouth that feeds off the food residue and sugar from our meals, the bacteria produce an acidic waste that breaks down our teeth. The enamel is the hard protective layer surrounding our teeth when the acid that is produced by bacteria sits on the enamel for too long, the acid begins to eat away at the enamel which can causes holes or cavities. This is why proper at home oral care is very important, it can prevent #toothdecay.
