menopause can affect your teeth

Did You Know the Menopause Can Affect Your Teeth?

The change in estrogen levels seen in the menopause can have a detrimental impact on your teeth:

– The menopause can cause dry mouth, worsened gum disease and potential tooth loss due to osteoporosis of the jaw bone (all a result of lower estrogen levels).

– Good oral care is vital during the menopause to maintain a healthy smile.

– Make an appointment with your dentist to discuss any concerns about your oral health during the menopause.

“You might be surprised to know that your teeth and gums may experience some changes with the onset of menopause.”
