This Year Dental Health Week focuses on Dental Health for Women.
We treat a large number of women across the local areas of Paddington and Bardon who are often surprised that women have particular dental health needs depending on hormonal balances.
A recent survey published by the ADA that revealed many women are unaware of the significant impact that various life stages have on the health of their teeth and gums. For instance, 54% of women believe that pregnancy has no effect on their dental health while one in five don’t think you need to take any extra oral health care during this time.
The truth is that major life events like pregnancy, puberty and menopause, as well as menstruation, dramatically affect the state of a woman’s dental health. Throughout the course of Dental Health Week, women will be encouraged to take a more proactive and preventive approach to their dental health as they’re educated on the ways their teeth, gums and mouth are affected during each of the pivotal phases of their life.
So how can you be more proactive and take better care of your oral health.
