How Menopause Can Impact on Oral Health

The hormone changes associated with menopause, when a woman’s menstrual cycle comes to an end, can affect oral health. Visiting your dentist can help maintain healthy teeth during the onset of menopause.

Key takeaways:

– Some will experience dry mouth with less saliva protecting teeth from bacteria, which may lead to teeth sensitivity and decay.

– A lack of estrogen can affect the alveolar bone supporting the teeth, increasing the risk of loose teeth.

– Women with existing gum disease may find it worsens during menopause.

“Since menopause can lead to other oral cavity changes such as dry mouth, gum disease may get worse with menopause. The gums may become more red and begin to pull back from the teeth, causing tooth sensitivity and gum infections.”
