Gum Disease and Premature Births

July 28, 2011

Filed under: News — elmbrookfamilydental @ 12:57 pm

baby1Recent studies are showing a correlation between premature birth and gum disease. Up to 12% of births in the United States are premature. Although many things may contribute to premature births, it is important to be aware of the factors that are within your control. Gum disease can be prevented, controlled and monitored by maintaining a regular schedule of dental care with your hygienist. The best time during a pregnancy to receive dental care is during the second trimester. Before you put your oral care on hold, consider the risks. Schedule your cleaning and exam with your friendly staff at Elmbrook Family Dental Partners if you are considering pregnancy or during your second trimester.
