Periodontitis is connected with hearth disease, diabetes, pre-term low birth, weight and arthritis. Patients and doctors should take it in account and speak about this point with a periodontist.

Pregnant women are particularly prone to periodontal (gum) disease due to hormonal changes associated with pregnancy. The oral mucosa becomes hypertrophic or thickened and sprayed more blood.
