AA Iliescu, P Perlea, K Earar, IM Gheorghiu, MG Iliescu, A Iliescu, M Mitran


Rezumat: Preterm delivery associated with low birth weight is one of the adverse outcomes of pregnancy. Oral infections, mainly the periodontal diseases, is claimed to be a risk factor. The Gram-negative anaerobic infection from gingival pockets, which is capable to induce transitory bacteremia, has the potential to pathogenically influence the maternal-fetal membranes and enhance previous inflammation of women’s genitourinary tract. The incidence of preterm low birth weight may depend on the progress of periodontal disease. In addition to study design, the right definition of pregnancy outcomes and chronic gingival inflammation seem to be the pivotal issues that govern the assessment of association between preterm birth and periodontal disease, as contributor of adverse effects in pregnancy.
Cuvinte cheie: pregnancy, oral infections, preterm birth.
