As a woman, you know that your health needs are unique and this includes your oral health needs. And because your needs are unique, you need to take extra care of yourself. While women tend to take better care of their oral health than men do, women's oral health is not significantly better than men's. This is because hormonal fluctuations throughout a woman's life can affect many tissues, including gum tissue. These fluctuations occur when you mature and change, as you do during puberty or menopause, or other times when you have special health needs, such as menstruation and particularly during pregnancy.
According to the Journal of Periodontology at least 23 percent of women between the ages 30 to 54 have periodontitis. And, 44 percent of women ages 55 to 90 who still have their teeth have periodontitis. Yet many women do not realize they have it until it reaches an advanced state, which is why regular hygiene check-ups are so important.
