Women have special needs when it comes to their oral health. A women's oral health can be influenced by a number of factors throughout their lives including puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Hormonal changes can have a great influence on the oral cavity, generally resulting in an increased inflammatory response in the gums.
Taking care of your oral health is essential, and can go a long way to helping you face the physical changes in your body during your lifetime. Following a good preventive routine can help to reduce any negative health outcomes. Here are some tips to help maintain your oral health.
-Brush twice daily, especially before bed.
-Eat a nutritious diet. Ensure you're getting enough calcium and vitamin D - talk to your physician for specific recommendations.
-Visit your dentist regularly and let them know about any changes to your health and/or medications you may be taking.
