Summary
Brief summary
The aim of the study is to investigate, in an Australian population of pregnant women,
whether the treatment of periodontal disease during pregnancy prevents pre-term birth and
other complications of pregnancy. Dental screening and periodontal treatment protocols have
been based on standard techniques employed by hygienists that can be readily applied to the
general obstetric population.
