For the first time fertility experts show that poor oral health has a significant influence on the occurrence of a pregnancy.

Professor Roger Hart said this at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction And Embryology that the negative effects of gum disease in the process of pregnancy is as great as the effect of obesity.

Gum disease is a chronic infectious disease and inflammation of the gums and tissues supporting

the teeth. The disease is caused by the normal bacteria in the mouth of every person. If these conditions are not controlled with treatment dental scaling, then the inflammation will cause damage to the gums and supporting tissues.Usually most easily identified by the symptoms of bleeding gums, tooth roots that are open, or unsteadiness teeth. The best prevention is by brushing and flossing regularly.

From previous studies, gum disease has been associated with various conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, respiratory and kidney diseases, as well as problems of pregnancy such as miscarriage and premature birth.

Professor Hart, who is Professor of Reproductive Medicine at the University of Western Australia and the Medical Director of Fertility Specialists of Western Australia, said that has not previously been no studies that investigate the link between gum disease with the possibility of pregnancy. So this is the first study that revealed that gum disease may be one of the many factors that can affect the odds of pregnancy.
