Second Trimester Pregnancy – Dental Hygiene
Transcript

There's a lot going on in the second trimester of pregnancy, a lot of hormonal changes, a lot of changes in your blood volume. There's a decrease in the ability of your blood to clot. And that can mean that you have bleeding of your gums when you're flossing or brushing your teeth. You can have a bloody nose a little bit more than usual, or blow your nose and notice blood tinge on there. And you want to make sure that you're keeping your dental hygiene as high as possible, and definitely seeing your dentist very regularly. Even throughout pregnancy. These are very important, preventative and personal wellness pieces. As you go through pregnancy, you're not just growing another human inside of you. You also have to take care of your own body and your own health care.
