The medium I decided to use for the visualization of pregnancy gingivitis is a caricature drawing which focuses on the mouth. The caricature is separated into left and right with the left being male with some plaque but healthy gums with localized gingivitis towards the back, while the right shows a visually pregnant female with red, puffy, and bleeding gums. The gingivitis experienced during pregnancy is due to the rise in hormones affecting not only the micro-circulatory system in the mother but also affects the bacteria in the mouth leading to a greater risk for gingivitis. This isn’t representative that men are less likely to get gingivitis or that someone who is pregnant will end up with inflamed, bleeding gums. Interestingly is that if either half of the image is covered, the caricature doesn’t look creepy and looks fitting for the gender.
