Gum disease is often associated with health conditions like heart disease and diabetes, but it also has links to issues during pregnancy. In fact, gum disease can begin or become worse during pregnancy because of the hormonal changes. Gum disease is also associated with preterm birth, so it is important to take care of gum disease early.
