    • Correct Answer:

    You're right! Thanks to the extra hormones coursing through the body, you're more likely to get gum disease during pregnancy. You may notice that your gums swell or bleed more than usual now.

    Because gum disease has been linked to pre-term births and low birth weight, it's important to see your dentist for regular cleanings while you're pregnant. Just skip the X-rays until after your baby is born.
