Poor Oral Health during Pregnancy

Poor Oral Health during PregnancySome studies show just how important the health of one’s teeth and gums is to their own overall health and well-being.  Patients with chronic issues such as periodontal disease will increase their risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and even dementia.  Recently published research from Australia now shows that the state of one’s gums could also affect a woman before and during their pregnancy.

These studies now show that women with chronic periodontal disease, one of the most prevalent health conditions that exist today, will have a much more difficult time of conceiving.  Once the women were pregnant, the periodontal disease was often exacerbated and it could lead to any number of problems, including a premature birth.  This is why we suggest that all women who are considering a new addition to their family contact our Los Angeles periodontal treatments specialist today.
