Toothache during pregnancy


Most of the expectant mothers who are seriously suited to pregnancy planning are obligatorily sent to the dentist in order to bring the oral cavity in order. However, not always, unfortunately, even such a responsible approach to your health helps. Many future mothers, including those who have always performed oral sanation, face dental pain during pregnancy.

Waiting for a toddler's teeth, women become very vulnerable : a lack of minerals, vitamins, changes in the hormonal background, exacerbation of chronic diseases, metabolic disorders, increased acidity of the oral cavity - this is not a complete list of factors that lead to toothache.

In addition, during pregnancy, calcium metabolism also changes. Decrease in calcium in the body contributes to early toxicosis, constant nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite. It should be borne in mind that calcium during pregnancy is required not only for the woman herself, but also for her baby - at 6-7 months of pregnancy, the skeleton of the crumb begins t

o grow rapidly, and often the missing calcium baby is simply washed out of the woman's bones. And the first "under attack" are teeth.

Pregnant women often develop tooth decay, which causes toothaches while the baby is waiting. Caries, which is a hotbed of infection, is a very dangerous disease for a future mother. And it's not just about the toothache, but about the fact that the blood vessels can get the infection into any organ, and this, in turn, can lead to complications of pregnancy. That's why you should not delay - with the first signs of tooth decay, you need to go to the dentist. And it is better not to wait for pain, but periodically visit a dental clinic.

Sometimes as a cause of toothache, gum disease( gingivitis) or inflammation of deep tissues in the tooth region( periodontitis) can occur. In the event that the toothache is very strong and does not allow you to even fall asleep, most likely, it is an inflammation of the dental nerve( pulpitis).Pain in pulpitis is characterized by acute, paroxysmal, spontaneous characters.

As mentioned above, is best used to sanitize the mouth before pregnancy .If, for some reason, the teeth did not heal before conception, then it is optimal to go to the dental clinic in the second trimester of pregnancy - even complicated methods of dentistry treatment are allowed during this period.

However, acute pain can overtake and in the last weeks of pregnancy. Many future mothers decide to postpone treatment until birth crumbs. .. and the remaining weeks are simply tormented, tolerated. And completely in vain. Modern dentistry has already reached a level where, without special manipulation and harm to the health of mom and baby, you can temporarily lose the pain in your teeth. A full-fledged treatment, of course, will be carried out only when the woman is ready for the necessary manipulations.

Remember that today to treat the teeth does not hurt : thanks to local anesthesia, all manipulations will be completely painless, moreover, in no way affect either your health or the health of your crumbs.

Pain in the teeth during pregnancy can also be caused by deep lesions of periodontal tissue, which is a dense tissue that connects the tooth roots with the holes. In this case, the dentist will most likely prescribe a tooth X-ray for you - the possible consequences of developing infections in the hard or soft tissues of the tooth represent a far greater danger than the X-ray during pregnancy. Therefore, do not give up X-rays, but during the procedure, do not forget to cover your tummy with a lead apron, so you will protect the fruit from the effects of X-rays.

Unfortunately, very often toothache occurs at the most inopportune moment, in particular, when there is no possibility to go to a dental clinic. In this case, it is possible to resort to the wisdom of our ancestors, taking advantage of folk methods of treating toothache. To reduce a toothache you can, if you rinse your mouth with a solution of baking soda, if you smear garlic with gum next to a sick tooth. You can use garlic in a different way: attach and tie the previously crushed garlic denticle to the wrist( around the pulse), opposite from the side on which the tooth hurts.

Well, of course, do not forget about preventive measures. To reduce the risk of toothache during pregnancy, you will help a balanced diet, complexes of vitamins and minerals.

Do not forget to carefully monitor the condition of the oral cavity, carrying out all the necessary hygiene procedures. So, after each meal, you should brush your teeth for at least two minutes. Optimum use of two toothpastes, the first of which should contain fluoride, calcium, antibacterial drugs, and the second part should include plant components - bark of oak, chamomile and so on. It is also advisable to use mouth rinses. And, of course, do not forget about preventive examinations at the dentist - during pregnancy you should visit the dental office at least 3-4 times.
