According to the results of new research, pregnant women with gum disease may increase the risk of premature birth. As a module of the study, the researchers examined the pregnancies and oral health of approximately 150 women.
Oral Health Foundation General Manager Dr. Nigel Carter OBE highlighted the impact of research on oral health on overall well-being. The health of our mouth can have a direct impact on many parts of our general health. This includes the chance to give birth with more faith. For many women, maintaining oral health during pregnancy becomes a challenge.
