How are periodontitis and preterm low birth weight delivery linked?

0

Recent studies suggest that mothers who have severe periodontitis are at significantly increased risk for preterm delivery of low birth weight babies. It is believed that the increased gum inflammation leads to inflammation and irritation of other membranes in the body, such as the sac that protects a baby. Irritation of these membranes can cause preterm delivery.
