Yes oral health is EXTREMELY important during both TTC and pregnancy. I go every 6 months without fail.

While this might be true for some, I'm thinking it's not the case for us. We both go to the dentist regularly (twice a year). :)

I do find it interesting why it only takes 2 months longer to conceive though? If it was a cause for infertility, then wouldn't it prevent conception, rather than making it take two months longer? The example he gave (about it taking someone without gum disease about 5 months to conceive versus someone with gum disease it might take about 7 months to conceive. Neither of those lengths of time are considered "infertility." I guess I'm just not liking their example. I commented to my DH when they said that it takes a person an average of two months longer to conceive if they have gum disease, that I must have horrible, awful gum disease, since it's taken me over 3 years of TTC with nothing happening. LOL!

I think it's a little bit of good information, but not the entire story.

Yes, it is just one of many things that can affect TTC, just surprised me, if it isn't one thing it's another.... sigh...
