Associations Between Maternal Periodontitis, Periodontal Treatment and Pregnancy Complications - Part 2: Analytical Epidemiology
Ide, Mark/Farrell, Suzanne
Possible links between maternal periodontitis and adverse pregnancy outcome have been proposed, and appear to be supported by experimental models based on data from animal studies, in vitro work and human obstetric studies. This paper aims to review the current literature on human clinical investigations into such a relationship, based on current knowledge and in light of proposed mechanisms.
