I am 28 and was just told my gingivitis is now periodontal disease and I have some bone loss and pockets are at 4 when normal is a 3. I have been told to get cleanings every 3 months and to do daily home care of brushing with electric toothbrush, flossing, and mouthwash. My concern is pregnancy. I read online that periodontal disease causes possible miscarriage and low birth weight babies. I also heard that periodontal disease can't be cured, can only be controlled. So right now I have the very red and inflamed gums and have been religiously brushing, flossing, mouthwash ordeal. Since this news of periodontal disease I am worried I will not be able to have a baby or will have a premature baby because of this gum infection. What are the facts? Am I over-worrying? Has anyone had a baby with also having periodontal disease or know of anyone?? I would really appreciate any feedback anyone can give me on this topic. Thank-you!
