Periodontal Disease and Pregnancy

Women who develop severe mouth infections and suffer from bleeding gums when they are pregnant have a greater chance of delivering their babies preterm if they don’t treat the infection.

Up to 70% of women develop inflammation of the gums, or gingivitis, during their pregnancy. It’s commonly referred to as pregnancy gingivitis. This is due to the changes in a mother’s hormone levels during pregnancy. This promotes an inflammatory response which increases the risk of developing periodontal disease.
