The connection between oral health & Fertility with Dr. Katie Lee (2.13)

Friends – your mouth matters to your fertility. And this conversation that I have with Dr. Katie Lee is mindblowing – if you haven’t seen a dentist recently – you’ll surely be calling for an appointment – because your oral microbiome is related to you fertility – ovulation, implantation, pregnancy, and the health of your child moving forward.

From her book, Saved by the Mouth, and her own experiences with fertility treatment – Dr. Katie Lee is on a mission to make oral microbiome testing standard of care when people are getting a fertility make up.

This is what we cover in this amazing episode:

  • How the mouth microbiome affects fertility
  • The Mouth Body connection
  • How the oral microbiome is created
  • The connection between gut health & oral health
  • When to go a see a dentist (during preconception, pregnancy, and post partum)
  • The specific mouth bacteria that affect fertility – from fertility, ovulation, implantation, miscarriage, still birth
  • Get your partner checked
  • Male factor of poor oral microbiome – ED, sperm mobility, motility, and morphology
  • Estrogen and Progesterone interplay with mouth bacteria
  • Timing of deep cleaning
  • How to get a saliva test

Dr. Katie Lee’s first-hand journey in recovering from the effects of dental trauma led her to specialize her career on the mouth-body connection® and dental implants. Dr. Lee searches for proven technologies that improve clinical outcomes and the patient experience and loves to educate her peers on those technologies. Dr. Lee authored a book entitled Saved By the Mouth to educate patients and clinicians on the importance of oral health. Dr. Lee has won many accolades, including Top 40 under 40 Dentists in America, and International Woman of the Year in Dentistry. She has been featured on local Fox and NBC news stations discussing the importance of oral health.

This is an eye opening episode that I hope will give some you an avenue to explore moving forward with your fertility journeys.
