Women's mouths have a lot to say

With more than half of all women who reach age 50 in 2000 living to at least 80, lifelong oral health care is more important than ever. According to a recent study, aging has been described as a women's issue, especially since women seek medical and dental care services, including esthetic dentistry, more frequently than men. There is strong evidence linking oral health and general health. During menopause, some women can experience dry mouth, burning sensation and changes in taste. Gums can even become sore and sensitive. Hormonal replacement therapy may cause gums to bleed, swell and become red. Osteoporosis can lead to tooth loss or erosion of the jawbone. Since teeth prevent the jawbone from eroding, once a woman begins losing teeth, the jawbone can lose its shape, which leads to difficulties with implants and dentures. Ill-fitting dentures can lead to mouth sores and a loss of oral function, such as the ability to speak and eat. Arthritis limits the mobility of the hands and face joints which affects the quality of brushing and extended care of the teeth.
