Women's Oral Health
Women have special oral health needs and considerations that men do not have. Hormonal fluctuations affect more than a woman's reproductive system. They have a surprisingly strong influence on the oral cavity. These changes are not necessarily the result of direct hormonal action on the tissue but are, perhaps, best explained as the effects of the local factors (e.g. plaque on tissues exacerbated by hormonal activity). Puberty, menses, pregnancy and menopause all influence women's oral health. Similar influences may also be seen in women taking oral contraceptives.
