Gum Infections (Gingivitis and Periodontitis
) are very common in diabetics.
Also, during pregnancy many women do suffer from what we call as Pregnancy Gingivitis
. Mild swelling of the gums is common in such conditions.
You can use topical gum paints available over the counter to apply to the gums. You can also take low doses of drugs like Paracetamol(Tylenol
) to relieve you of your pain.
But I still feel, visiting your dentist
and getting any treatment done before you hit the 25th week of pregnancy is of utmost importance.
