          Women’s Hormones and Oral Health

          Ladies, our hormones are a fact of life!

          Hormones control our weight, mood, sex drive, and health. Did you know that we experience hormonal changes throughout our lives which makes us more susceptible to oral health problems?

          Let’s start by raising awareness and highlight the link between women’s hormones and dental health.

          How does this happen?

          The surge in female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) increases the blood flow to the gums. This influences our body’s response to the toxins released by the bacteria in the plaque buildup and leads to red, swollen gums that are likely to bleed when brushing.

          On the other hand, the decrease in female hormones can lead to dry mouth which increases the risk of tooth decay, as well as a reduction in bone density which can influence periodontal or gum diseases.

          When do women’s hormones fluctuate?

          We go through several hormonal changes throughout our lives, but there are 5 key stages where the fluctuations are most drastic.

          While hormonal fluctuation is inevitable, we can take certain measures to reduce the harm it can cause to our teeth and gums. Maintain good oral hygiene, keep a healthy lifestyle, and see your dentist regularly to avoid and treat oral diseases.
