SYSTEMATIC REVIEW CONCLUSION: Treatment of periodontal disease with scaling and root planing (SRP) during pregnancy is unlikely to reduce the risk of preterm birth or low birth weight. CRITICAL SUMMARY ASSESSMENT: A meta-analysis of 11 randomized controlled trials, including recently published high-quality studies, showed no evidence that SRP during pregnancy prevents preterm birth or other adverse pregnancy outcomes. EVIDENCE QUALITY RATING: Good.
