Menopause and dental problems

What causes gum disease during menopause? Primarily, the culprit is a radical change in estrogen levels. This hormone
plays a part in the maintenance of several mouth areas, including tissues of the tongue, salivary glands and jawbones.
Because your teeth are also a part of your skeletal system, itís no surprise that gum disease often starts to set in
at the same time as osteoporosis.

Another menopausal symptom is dry mouth, which is characterized by a decrease in saliva due to lower estrogen levels.
This lack of saliva weakens your first line of defense against developing gingivitis because saliva contains oxygen,
which helps rid the mouth of bacteria. Coupled with weaker oral tissue, which is also associated with estrogen deficiency,
your mouth becomes a prime target for these bacteria to fester and develop gingivitis.

Gum disease is mainly characterized by dry or swollen gums that exhibit a change in color and bleed when you brush your teeth
Menopause and dental problems: six habits to avoid

Menopause and Gum Disease

Dental health should be a concern for everyone at every age, but particularly for women entering the menopausal transition.

For one, estrogen is a protector of bones and tissues, the substances that make up teeth and gums, and during menopause,
the chemical is produced in an abnormal amount and at an abnormal rate. If estrogen is busy regulating itself, it has no
time to perform its other duties, like tending to your mouth

What To Do If Your Teeth Are Knocked Out - (29 May 2010)
"Sometimes teeth are completely knocked out -- roots and all, so in those cases place the tooth or teeth
in a container of cold milk and get to a dentist within thirty minutes for a reinsertion procedure,"
said Orrico. "There's a short window of opportunity in which the remaining living tissue on the root
surface can be kept alive. Milk has a neutral ph balance and is fortified with vitamins to make it an
excellent fluid to help preserve teeth." He stressed that time has the greatest influence on the success
rate for replacing teeth this way ..... More.......
