Blog Series – Women and Oral Health

May 6, 2019

Women’s dental health

Today our main goal here is to focus on raising the importance and awareness of oral health for women during key stages in their life.

Women have special oral health requirements during unique phases in their lives starting from puberty then moving onto menstruation and the use of contraception, pregnancy and menopause.

While most women today are not aware that they may be more susceptible to oral health issues we would like to help outline and give you an understanding of these unique hormonal changes that you as a woman will eventually experience.

Hormones have a major affect not only on the blood supply to the gum and tissue but also the body’s response to certain toxins that arise from plaque build-up. As a result of this, women are more prone to the development of periodontal diseasemouth ulcers, inflamed gums, gingivitis, altered taste sensations and dry mouth. The following are only a few of the oral health issues you will experience during this time so it’s important not only to be aware that these changes will happen but also learn how to maintain a good oral health routine to help prevent major issues down the track.
