Premature Birth

Research from the University of Alabama has even identified a link between higher rates of premature births and women with periodontal disease; brought on by gum infections producing increased levels of prostaglandin and other compounds known to induce labour.

In fact, researchers were able to reduce premature births by a staggering 84%, in women who received scaling and root planing, when they were less than 35 weeks pregnant.

That’s why the Rock House team of dentists and hygienists is so passionately committed to championing the highest standards of oral heath on behalf of each and every patient, regardless of their age.
