Fertility and Oral health

A new paper reviews the relation between poor oral health and fertility problems.

The review finds that there is a consistency among studies about possible positive association between poor oral health and fertility problems features such as improper spermatological parameters and erectile dysfunction, increased time to conceive and endometriosis but there was an inconsistency about relationship between maternal periodontitis and male-babies sub fertility in future.

The paper sheds light on interesting signs that show oral dental health symptoms can be reflective of systemic health status and therefore fertility score of an individual, thereby recognition of such relationship between oral health and decreased fertility by gynecologists and dentists can contribute to the prevention of serious side effects of these problems.
