  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Yes it is nomal to suffer dental problems as threre is an increase in levels of progesterone and estrogen. By the end of third trimester, these hormones reach level 10 - 30 times the levels during the menstrual cycle.
    Common dental problems during pregnancy include: marginal gingivitis, gingival, enlargement gingival bleeding. You can avoid these problems by regular brushing and flossing. Make sure you visit dentist regularly as soon as you plan to have a baby to ensure scaling and polishing could be done, if required.

    Hope this answers your query.
