Periodontal disease and pregnancy

  1. 1. PERIODONTAL DISEASE AND PREGNANCY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT DENTAID
  2. 2. ORAL HEALTH DURING PREGNANCY During pregnancy, women undergo the greatest hormonal and physiological changes of their lives, some of which can affect their mouths. These changes may include:  An increase in cariogenic and periodontopathogenic bacteria from changes in diet, in dental hygiene and in salivary composition  Changes in gingival tissue from increased vascular permeability  Increased sex hormones: estrogen and progesterone
  3. 3. ORAL HEALTH DURING PREGNANCY The main oral impacts include:  Periodontal disease (pregnancy gingivitis)  Tooth mobility  Caries  Epulis gravidarum (pregnancy tumour/granuloma)  Dental erosion  Xerostomia  Tooth sensitivity  Halitosis
  4. 4. DEFINITION  Pregnancy or gestational gingivitis Is defined as gingival inflammation initiated by oral biofilm and exacerbated by the increase in endogenous sex hormone levels If left untreated, it can progress to become periodontitis GINGIVITIS PERIODONTITIS
  5. 5.  GINGIVITIS  Redness  Inflammation of the gums  Bleeding  Reversible  PERIODONTITIS  Gingival recession  Tooth mobility  Bone loss  Possible loss of teeth SIGNS
  6. 6. EPIDEMIOLOGY  60-75% prevalence of pregnancy gingivitis1  50% of pregnant women with gingivitis BEFORE pregnancy can become periodontitis2  25% of pregnant women have periodontitis3 1.

  7. 7. PERIODONTAL DISEASE - PREGNANCY Existing studies suggest that periodontal disease in pregnant women is an added risk factor for adverse pregnancy outcomes such as5,6,7:  Preterm delivery (labour before 37 weeks)  Low birth weight (<2500 g)  Pre-eclampsia/eclampsia (pregnancy-induced hypertension, elevated levels of protein in urine) 5.

  8. 8. BIOLOGICAL MECHANISM OF THE LINK
  9. 9. RECOMMENDATIONS Important: Prevention of periodontal disease before and during pregnancy - If you are pregnant or if you plan to become pregnant , consult your dentist for an oral health diagnosis - Schedule a dental check-up for each trimester during pregnancy to keep your oral health in check
  10. 10. RECOMMENDATIONS Physical control of oral biofilm in the dental office: - Professional tartar removal: removal of supragingival plaque and calculus - Scaling and root planing: removal of subgingival plaque and calculus
  11. 11. RECOMMENDATIONS Physical control of oral biofilm at home: - Manual or electric brushing : 2-3 times per day, at least, 2 minutes - Interdental hygiene: interproximal brushes and dental floss/tape - Oral irrigation
  12. 12. RECOMMENDATIONS Chemical control of oral biofilm: - Prevention of Periodontal Disease: Daily use antiseptic with Cetylpyridinium chloride - Treatment of Periodontal Disease : Antiseptic that combines Chlorhexidine and Cetylpyridinium chloride
  13. 13. CONCLUSIONS  During pregnancy the probability of developing periodontal disease increases  Periodontal disease may have an impact on pregnancy and foetus  It is vital to prevent this disease to avoid pregnancy complications  Regular dental check-ups before and during pregnancy are basic for controlling oral health and to have time to react if necessary
