Women who brush and floss their teeth regularly are likely to get pregnant more quickly than those with poor oral health, a study has found.

The Australian study found that women with gum disease take an average of seven months to get pregnant compared to five months for those with healthy gums. Professor Roger Hart, from the University of Western Australia, presented his findings at the conference of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Stockholm.
