The teeth are often affected during pregnancy, softening and
decaying rapidly, causing severe neuralgia. The teeth should be cleaned

frequently during the day to get rid of the secretions of the mouth, and

at night before retiring. Milk of magnesia should be held in the mouth for

a few minutes; cavities in the teeth should be stopped with a temporary

filling. Teaspoonful of lacto phosphate of lime can be taken three times a

day with benefit.
