Post subject: Problems with teeth
I understand that during pregnancy, ur hormones cause ur gums to weaken and can allow the teeth to become sensitive and feel as though they are wobbly.
Well During my pregnancy, rite from the very begining I had problems with this matter! My teeth became very sensitive and i was very aware of them, constant fiddling with them by my tongue and as a result of this my gums used to bleed.
After seeing the demtist, he assured me it was just hormones and perfectly normal and that after having my son, they would settle down back to normal.
10months on, my teeth are exactly the same!! They constantly hurt and cause me to have toothache, EVERYDAY! which then results to me getting bad headaches!
I have been back to the dentist several times and have had x rays and them checked over and he says there is nothing wrong!???
Has anyone else had problems with their teeth?

Yes, i suffered for a year, but i remember after my daughter was born i suffered such bad toothache and couldnt take anything because i was brest feeding, Also you dont say whether you breast feeding or not, cos that can make a huge difference, becuase your hormones are still not back to normal. Good luck, i know what you going through. Maybe try some sort of a teething gel, might help. Get better soon
