Expatriate international health insurance customers who wish to become pregnant should ensure they maintain good oral hygiene.
Commenting on research that found gum disease can increase the amount of time it takes a woman to conceive, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation Dr Nigel Carter called this further proof that "we should not take our oral health for granted".
He pointed out that, as well as lengthening the amount of time it takes a woman to become pregnant by two months, gum disease is also linked to strokes, dementia, kidney, type 2 diabetes and respiratory and heart disease.
This research will hopefully "act as a further motivator for those women looking to start a family" to maintain good levels of dental hygiene, he declared.
The research Dr Carter referred to, which was published by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, is the first of its kind to make a link between oral health and the amount of time it takes to conceive.
