Women's dental health

Hormonal changes can affect your dental health.

Being a woman means that there are different oral health risk factors that can impact your smile. At East Perth Dental Centre, our East Perth family dentists can help you take the preventative steps to avoid those extra challenges.

How Hormonal Changes Impact Your Smile

During changes like puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause, your hormone levels will fluctuate. This fluctuation can cause changes in your gums. You may notice them becoming tender, swollen or even bleeding.

Hormone replacement therapy or oral contraceptives can also play a role in the health of your teeth, gums and supporting bone. Be sure to let our East Perth dentists know about any medication that you are currently taking.

Prevention Is Key

The best way to counteract unwanted gum problems is to pay particular attention to daily flossing and schedule routine preventative checkups with your dentist. Contact East Perth Dental Centre today to find out how we can help!
