Does pregnancy affect your teeth?

With severe morning sickness, frequent episodes of vomiting over a prolonged period can result in damage to the teeth. Acidic damage of the teeth is termed dental erosion. It is caused by the highly acidic stomach fluids attacking the teeth and wearing them down.To limit any possible dental damage:Rinse your mouth with water (or a good mouthwash) or drink milk after vomiting.Do not brush your teeth for at least half an hour after vomiting. Otherwise you will cause more damage to the softened teeth.
