Women's oral health depends on their different stages of life. For many women, this is directly related to changes in hormone levels, such as puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Women are also more likely to be diagnosed with such things as dry mouth, osteoporosis, and eating disorders.
As a woman, you need to practice good oral hygiene. Brush with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day and after every meal. Floss thoroughly each day. To help avoid problems, your dentist may request to see you more frequently during stages of your life when hormone levels are changing.
