Gum Health in Menopausal Women

During menopause, there is a drop in sex hormones.

We have sex hormone receptors in our salivary glands and our oral tissues-same as we have on our vaginal tissues :

Sounds crazy!!

So when we have a major drop in these hormone levels especially estrogen & progesterone, we can feel oral discomfort, if ignored or left untreated can implant our dental health & also mental health.

Note: these are the most common discomforts felt by menopausal women:

  1. Xerostomia: due to decrease in salivary flow there is increased occurrence of dental decay.
  2. Taste alterations: dysesthesia
  3. Loosening of teeth-due to osteoporotic jaws.
  4. Gum problems- Atropic gingivitis leading to severe gum diseases.
  5. Burning mouth syndrome-due to decline in Vitamin B12 .

Oral Care

I don’t recommend use of mouthwash as necessary to your dental routine, unlike the commercials shows you, your mouth wash will not go between your teeth and remove bad stuff – only thorough brushing and flossing will do that.

If you still insist on mouth washing then make sure it does not contain alcohol. The alcohol in mouth wash causes dryness in the mouth leading to occurrence of caries and few more bad effects.

Dental Implant – Restoring Your Tooth

Dental Implants 

The treatment is done to replace one or more teeth.

Without teeth the jaw bone starts to disappear gradually, traditional solutions is removable dentures or fixed bridges .

However dentures are uncomfortable can cause soreness while fixed bridges involves cutting down on healthy tooth structure to create space.

Dental implant on other hand are strong, durable, comfortable and feel like natural teeth.😊

Dental Implants

Dental implants are safe and carried out every day in surgeries all over the world. The thorough examination of your oral and overall health will ensure that you are suitable candidate for the treatment and that it is safe for you to proceed for the treatment.
