Periodontal Disease and Pregnancy

The link between periodontal disease (PD) and pregnancy is well established. But new research suggests another link. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, pregnant women who have periodontal disease "may be seven times more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too small."

The disease may cause an increase in the biological fluids that induce labor, increasing the risk of having a premature baby. The Academy encourages women who are considering pregnancy to be screened for PD.
