  • Its cause you are pregnant hun. It is okay, just brush your teeth regulary, go see a dentist and let them know you are pregnant so they can help you with the enamel you will lose and the bleeding...try a soft toothbrush if you are already.

  • If you aren't taking a prenatal vitamin, or aren't getting enough calcium, the baby will pull calcium from your teeth. My mom wasn't getting enough calcium from her prenatals and being pregnant pretty much ruined her teeth. I would talk to your ob about it, and go see your dentist and see what they can do about it. Don't wait too long though, they longer you wait the worse it will get and the less you'll be able to do about it.

  • You are developing gum disease, which can cost you your teeth. You must start to floss everyday and brush twice a day. You need to get to the dentist and get your gums and teeth checked very soon. Rubbing fresh strawberries in your mouth will sooth your gums.
