Gum disease ‘could lead to premature birth’

Gum disease in pregnant women could lead to premature childbirth, the Journal of Periodontology has claimed.

According to the Jakarta Post, obstetrician Boy Abidin claimed women in the late stage of pregnancy who suffer from gum disease are more likely to suffer premature birth.

However, many women do not feel they can have treatment for the problem as it could affect their baby.

He commented: "It is true that dentists must be more careful treating pregnant women. And pregnant women must be given smaller doses of medicine than normal."

Elsewhere, MC Ortega recently wrote in her blog for Empowher that gum disease often strikes those in their 40s and it can be a sign of poor oral health.

The blogger noted the symptoms of gum disease can include hypersensitivity, the roots of the tooth being exposed and visible, the tooth feeling notched at the gum line, a change in the tooth’s colour and cavities below the gum line.
