Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry 25 years experience
Teeth: Teeth don't really bleed. Gums might be bleeding. Your dentist could verify the source of blood.
Dr. Paul Grin
Pain Management 36 years experience
Pregnancy gingivitis: Pregnancy hormones can make your gums bleed, and a visit to a dentist is warranted. Brush teeth 2-3X a day and after meals whenever possible and floss at least once per day. Congratulations!
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Pregnancy gingivitis: teeth don't bleed, infected gums do. Hormonal changes make gums more susceptible to damage/infection, which can result in premature birth and/or low birth weight. For your baby's sake as well as your own see your Dentist now. And Arnold,s a great name for a boy...congrats!
