Hormonal Changes Affect Women’s Oral Heath

hrmonlchanges144

HORMONAL CHANGES CAN AFFECT nearly every part of our bodies—including the mouth and gums. They can even affect your orthodontic treatment.

If you, or someone you love, is experiencing sore, swollen, extra pink or bleeding gums it may be a result of such changes. Studies show that changing hormones particularly affect women’s periodontal health.

Increased Gum Disease Risk

Throughout a woman’s life there are periods of time when hormones fluctuate a great deal including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. During these times, changes in estrogen and progesterone can dramatically increase the chances of developing gingivitis. Whether you’re a teen, or an adult patient, it’s especially important to care for your gums during times of hormonal fluctuations.

How Can Gum Disease Affect Orthodontic Treatment?

Gingivitis can have a large impact on your orthodontic treatment. If it worsens and becomes periodontitis, you may experience unpredictable tooth movement. Your risk of bone loss and tooth loss is greatly increased.

Adult patients should be especially aware of gum disease risks, since we’re more likely to experience gum disease as we age. In some cases, we may refer you to a periodontist to evaluate your gum health and determine the best course for treatment. Often, increased dental cleanings can get the problem under control, if we catch it early.

Thorough Oral Hygiene During Hormonal Changes

Whether you have braces or not, brushing and flossing every day—without exception—is one of the most important keys to gum health. If sore or bleeding gums continue, be sure to contact us right away so we can discuss other possible solutions and avoid bigger problems.

Do You Have Questions About Gum Disease?

Let’s visit! And please share this information with the women in your life. All of us can benefit from learning more about our bodies and how to adapt to hormonal changes.

Thanks for being our valued patients and friends!
