The correlation between pregnancy and caries resp. gingivitis has been investigated in 57 pregnant women under care, at least once in each trimester. The caries prevalence was 98.25 per cent, both DMF-T and DMF-S index mean values showed a small increase with progressing pregnancy. The mean number of decayed teeth decreased (from 2.58 to 1.54), the values of filled, resp. extracted teeth increased (7.82 to 8.88, resp. 2.33 to 2.51) for the 3.s trimester of pregnancy. The prevalence of gingivitis was 96.5 per cent, showing increasing index values from the first (2.43), through the second (3.10) to the third (3.40) trimester. The mean index values of oral hygiene showed a decrease, which is attributed to continuous dental care and treatment during pregnancy.
