Oral Tumors During Pregnancy

Posted .

You may have heard of pregnancy tumors, but they’re most likely different than what you’d guess. With a bit of support from our team, you can avoid or treat pregnancy tumors, depending on your present oral health. During pregnancy, some women can develop “pregnancy tumors” on their gums. Fortunately, these “tumors” are not cancerous, but rather simply a swelling of the mouth’s soft tissue. Pregnancy tumors often form on the gums between the teeth, and they most often occur sometime during the second trimester of pregnancy and disappear in the months after the baby’s birth. They normally have a red, raspberry-esque look, and they can bleed easily when touched or brushed.

Pregnancy tumors might be related to plaque buildup, so make sure you’re brushing your teeth two times each day if you’re pregnant, and don’t forget to floss at least one time per day either. If you are worried about pregnancy tumors, Dr. Corey Johnson might be able to extract them. Give us a call now if you’re pregnant, and we’ll begin working on a specialized service plan just for you immediately.
