It is estimated that up to 20% of the Australian population suffer from a form of gum disease. Periodontitis is caused by enviromental (bacteria) and host related factors. 

Journal of Periodontology researchers have determined that women undergoing ovulation induction for infertility treatment for more than 3 menstrual cycles experience higher gingival inflammation, bleeding and gingival crevicular fluid.

The purpose of this study was to assess the long-term influence of gingival inflammation on tooth loss.

According to Kathy Phipps, PhD, under normal circumstances of diet and challenge, children become permanently colonized with mutans streptococci between the middle of the second year and the end of the third year of life, during a window of infectivity.
