Dental Arts Group DENTAL HYGIENE AND INFERTILITY It may seem like there are a million different areas of your health to think about when trying to get pregnant, including diet, exercise, and family medical history. Dental health is often not considered, however, even though an increasing amount of research shows that healthy dental hygiene can improve fertility in both men and women, while poor oral care can have a negative impact on in vitro fertilization treatment. Gum disease can increase the time it takes a couple to conceive and can cause several dangerous conditions including pre-eclampsia and premature birth. In men, issues such as erectile dysfunction and low sperm count can be caused by the bacterial infections of gum disease and tooth decay. One serious threat to dental health as well as to overall health is gum disease. And the best way to deal with gum disease is to prevent it, with daily brushing, ossing, and visiting the dentist on a regular basis. At DENTAL ARTS GROUP, we are diligent in our approach to making sure periodontal disease doesnt destroy your smile. It is our mission at 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston, to deliver the highest level of care, using the latest materials and always keeping our patients comfort and well-being in mind. You can reach us at 401-521-3661. Of ce hours are Monday-Thursday 8a.m. to 4p.m.; Friday 8a.m. to 12p.m. P.S. Gingivitis, although not as serious a dental condition as periodontal disease (gum disease), still carries the bacteria that causes infertility problems.
