Pregnant Women can be Treated for Periodontal Disease (GUM DISEASE)

A study done at Feira de Santana State University in Bahia, Brazil tested a group of periodontally healthy pregnant mothers and a group of pregnant mothers with periodontal disease. The study does not show benefit from periodontal therapy in preventing pre-term, low birth weight babies. It does confirm that periodontal therapy is safe for pregnant women.
