Pregnancy

Pregnant women who have periodontal disease may be seven times more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too small. Periodontal disease is an infection and all infections are cause for concern during pregnancy because they pose a risk to the health of the baby. If you are thinking about becoming pregnant, be sure to include an evaluation with a periodontist as part of your prenatal care.
