ALONSO ROSADO, A. et al. Periodontal diseases in pregnancy and its association with preterm delivery and low birth weight: Evidence and controversies. Avances en Periodoncia [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.2, pp.85-89. ISSN 2340-3209.

Pregnancy involves physiological changes which, although not meaning a risk in itself for either the mother's or the baby's health, may lead to the development of new pathologies, including periodontal disease. This bibliographical revision compiles the conclusions drawn by different publications about the relationship between periodontal disease and low-weight preterm births, highlighting variable results.

Keywords : Periodontal disease; preterm birth; low birth weight; pregnancy.
