Periodontosis and pregnancy - because of it you can have problems ...


Australian scientists at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology reported that periodontitis, a disease of periodontal tissues, can cause problems in pregnancy. The person presenting the results noticed that this type of inflammation is a problem especially in women of a race other than white, and its effect is comparable to that observed in the case of obesity.

All because natural inflammation for periodontitis affects the whole body. As a result, the risk of such abnormalities as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular, respiratory and kidney diseases increases.

The study was conducted on a group of 3000 women. It turned out that women without periodontitis got pregnant on average after five months of efforts, and women with this disease on average after seven months. In addition, periodontal disease had an increased risk of pregnancy complications, early births and miscarriages.

At the same time, it has been observed that periodontitis has a more negative effect on non-Caucasian women. So far, however, this relationship has not been explained.

There is one conclusion of the study: if possible, visit your dentist and treat any inflammation before planning your pregnancy.
