What are Pregnancy Tumors?

You may know about pregnancy tumors, but they’re most likely different than what you’d expect. With a tiny bit of help from our team, you can foil or treat pregnancy tumors, depending on your oral health. During pregnancy, some women can make “pregnancy tumors” on the soft tissues of their mouth. Fortunately, these “tumors” are not cancerous, but simply a swelling of the oral cavity’s soft tissue. Pregnancy tumors often progress on the gums between the chompers, and they usually occur sometime during the second trimester of pregnancy and disappear in the months after the baby’s birth. They typically have a red, raspberry-esque appearance to them, and they can bleed easily when or squeezed.

Pregnancy tumors may be related to plaque accrual, so make sure you’re brushing your teeth twice every day if you’re pregnant, and don’t forget to floss once a day either. If you are concerned about pregnancy tumors, Dr. Robert E. Hansen Jr., DDS might be able to get rid of them. Reach out to us now if you’re pregnant, and we’ll start working on a specialized treatment plan just for you now.
