Gum Disease Delays Pregnancy

Article on this topic from AFP via Google

So, aside from all the other nasty little things that gum disease is thought to be related to, it appears that delayed pregnancy is another.

It seems that every time we turn around that gum disease is related to something else.   Heart disease, stroke, low weight, pre-term babies, lung infections and other health problems appear to have some association with or to gum disease. 

Yet, we can say that this isn't really new information!   The ancient people of the world had an intuitive understanding of this fact.   When they were going to purchase an animal or slave in days gone by, they would often look at the teeth.

They understood, even back then, that the health of the mouth was a reflection of the health of the body!   Therefore, modern confirmation of this should not be such a big surprise to anyone.

If You Want To Get Pregnant Sooner

Please pay attention to cleaning up that gum disease if possible.  Many people have gum disease and don't even know it.  So do not be surprised if you have it.

In addition, just being pregnant INCREASES your risk of having gum disease.    It is also not good for the baby as it has been determined to contribute to low birth weight and even premature delivery.

Gum disease is a real problem even when not pregnant.  Please pay close attention, not just for your sake but for the sake of those you love - or those you soon will...
