ABSTRACT
The article presents research into the factors that may influence and promote tooth decay in women during pregnancy. An investigation sponsored by the Prenatal Clinic of the School of Medicine at Yale University screened approximately 200 patients who completed specially designed record cards that were classified with respect to mouth condition, nationality, race, economic status, irregularities in previous pregnancies and dietary habits. Age, economic status, and number of pregnancies showed little correlation to teeth and gum conditions, while diet and general nutrition had a strong association with tooth decay and periodontal pathology. A daily diet of milk, fresh fruits and green vegetables is recommended.
