Teeth and Conception

I have heard that teeth issues can cause conception issues. Anybody have any experience? (IE, not being able to get pregnant, getting teeth fixed, then conceiving?)

  • I haven't heard about conception problems, but having a specific kind of infection that causes cavities, I believe it is strep mutans HAS been linked to premature birth and sepsis in newborns. If you want more info, I have a lot of research about it at work, but I can try to find googled links for you.

  • I haven't heard that, and I don't know how that would work. I do know that people with healthy teeth seem to just be in better overall health, but I think that has more to do with lifestyle than the teeth having something to do with overall health themselves.

  • No, but I know when your pregnant your supposed to take care of your teeth. You can have gums that bleed and sensative teeth as a result of being pregnant.

  • kjrn79 No worries about doing additional research, but thanks for the offer! It's not real important at the moment, I was more looking for anyone with first hand experience or if it was even legitimate. I'd only heard about it once, and I don't even remember where (that would probably be helpful now...) so it might not even be a real thing.
