You may be surprised to discover that a number of studies have linked fertility issues to periodontal disease. And this link is there for both men and women. Now I’m not saying if you get great dental care like you’d receive at Grove City Dental then all of your fertility concerns will be resolved, but I am saying that getting the proper diagnoses and treatment for gum disease may help in some cases. Not only has there been a link to periodontal disease and fertility but they have also discovered that premature birth and low infant birth weight may be impacted too.
The research seems to indicate that many women are vulnerable to periodontal conditions during pregnancy and the best way to help with this situation is to make more frequent visits to the dentist during pregnancy. Yes, this may not sound like the most appealing thing to do while pregnant, but ladies let’s face it, it will not be nearly as challenging as your regular OB-GYN visits-right?
I’ve provided links to a couple of articles for you to read to help you discover more about this connection, but if you have
questions that are not answered by the articles then please feel free to call Grove City Dental at 614-808-1700 and schedule
