MATERNAL HEALTH AND CHILDREN’S HEALTH
Poor maternal oral health can have significant impacts on a woman’s overall health and the health of her children.
Studies suggest there is an increased risk of both pre-term birth and low birth weight among pregnant women with periodontal disease. Mothers with untreated cavities and tooth decay have children with twice the likelihood of experiencing cavities and tooth decay themselves and with up to twice the severity.
While there are many factors that contribute to the development of diseases, good oral health and nutritional practices of mothers are more likely to be modeled to their children too.
