Dental Concerns for Women

Many female dental patients may not realize that they have unique needs when it comes to oral health care. The truth is that women go through a number of biological and physical changes during their lives that can make them more susceptible to oral health concerns – concerns men may never know.

Life experiences from menstruation to menopause can cause significant changes to the teeth and gums. Additionally, pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding each present their own opportunities for dental concern.

The most common reason for these oral health issues is the dramatic hormonal changes that accompany menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, nursing and menopause. Oral lesions, ulcers, dry sockets and swollen gums are all common during these times. It is more important than ever to visit the dentist during these times.

Additionally, women who take birth control pills have been shown to have an increased risk of gingivitis. During menopause, hormone replacement therapy has been shown to cause bleeding and swollen gums. Gum disease can also present a higher risk for premature births.
