Early births reduced by successful gum disease treatment
A new study has revealed the strongest suggestion yet that successful treatment of periodontal disease reduces the number of premature babies. The findings, which recently were publicized at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research in Washington, followed more than 1,000 pregnant women between six and 20 weeks gestation. The study monitored 160 participants diagnosed with periodontal disease and compared them to 872 pregnant women who had good levels of oral health.
