Maternal periodontitis can lead to adverse reproductive outcomes
from The Guardian Express
In a study published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, adverse outcomes in pregnancies of women whose mothers had periodontitis or gum disease, could lead to problems such as low birth weight and pre-mature birth, in their own pregnancies. Additionally, a link between these adverse reproductive outcomes has also been established via other immune/inflammatory diseases like asthma and osteoarthritis. In America today, almost half of all adults 30 years old or more have some level of periodontitis, and the numbers are rising fast.
