Gum Problems during Menopause: Consult a Dentist

Women are at a greater risk of dental problems, including gum problems, during menopause and other times of hormonal fluctuation. This is most commonly associated with changes in estrogen levels in the body and, in the case of menopause, the natural aging process.

If a woman experiences these or any other abnormal gum problems during the menopausal time, it is a good idea for her to speak with her dental care professional or primary care physician.

While a visit to the dentist’s chair is usually the only sure way to determine the cause of gum problems, it is very important to first become informed of the possible causes of gum problems, especially during menopause.

Just one more reason not to skip your next dental appointment!
