New reports published on expecting mothers and dental care.
Dental care practitioners have long mulled the debate of treating pregnant women for dental related procedures, more specifically the treatment of gum related diseases. A new study founded by the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology has yielded some very interesting results which suggests that premature births can be avoided if the treatment of periodontal ailments is successful. The report cited that women who received successful treatment for the periodontal disease had only a 10.5% rate of premature delivery. The rate among women whose treatments were not successful for periodontal disease was a staggering 62%. The journal concluded that it was appropriate for the medical practitioner to refer their pregnant patients for dental care as long as the treatment process did not involve drugs and relied on the scaling and planning method.
In a similar report, the California Dental Association published an article citing the importance of good dental hygiene and care for pregnant women. The report also reiterated safety concerns of getting dental treatment for expecting mothers, citing no health concerns with procedures that involve dental x-rays or local anesthesia use. Studies performed showed no real danger in getting such dental procedures completed and even yielded results showing the possibility of preventing the spread of bacterial oral disease from the expecting mother to the infant.
