PERIODONTAL DISEASE MAY DELAY CONCEPTION



An Australian study involving 4013 pregnant women has shown that periodontal disease may delay the time needed for conception an average of two months.
University of Australia researchers found that women with gum disease need an average of seven months to become pregnant while the average is around five months for women with healthy gums.
Periodontal Disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bones that support the teeth. Previous studies have linked gum disease with a number of other health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, respiratory ailments, low birth weight or pre-term babies and impotence in men.
While the mechanisms involved in the oral/systemic relationship are still being studied, what is clear is that chronic inflammation appears to be the cause of a chain of reactions that may affect other organs such as the reproductive system.
Since Periodontal Disease is a modifiable risk factor, the scientists in the study emphasize the importance of good oral health and that dental hygiene is just a part of “a whole package of healthy lifestyle”.
Researchers further suggest that women who are considering becoming pregnant should consult with a dental professional to make sure they do not have gum disease.
I’d love your feedback.until next time !!! naveen"""

  1. Periodontal disease is a disease that affects periodontal tissues. It affects the alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, cementum and the gum line. Periodontal diseases are classified into two categories, namely gingivitis and periodontitis.

  2. It should be understood that to stop periodontal disease, it is essential to remove the calculus from the teeth. This cannot be done with drugs, baking soda, toothpaste, or nutritional supplements. Currently, the only method proven to rejuvenate diseased, infected root surfaces involves calculus removal with
    specialized instruments
    . When a patient has very deep pockets (beyond 5 millimeters), non-surgical root planing cannot consistently reach the accumulated calculus.
