Women and Tooth Care

Women have special needs when it comes to their oral health. That’s because the physical changes they undergo through life—menstruation, pregnancy and childbirth, breast-feeding and menopause—cause many changes in the body, some harmful to teeth and gums.

Lesions and ulcers, dry sockets, as well as swollen gums, can sometimes occur during surges in a woman's hormone levels. These periods would be a prime time to visit the dentist. Birth control pills have been shown to increase the risk of gingivitis, and hormone replacement therapy has been shown to cause bleeding and swollen gums. Gum disease can also present a higher risk for premature births.

Some research has shown that women may be more likely to develop dry mouth, eating disorders, jaw problems such as temporomandibular joint disorders, and facial pain—all of which can be difficult from a physical and emotional standpoint.

Taking care of your mouth with proper oral health care is essential, and can go a long way to helping you face the physical changes in your body over the years.

What Our Clients Say About Us

    Dr. Huffman is one of the Best Dentist’s in Salisbury! I have been going to him for many years! He always does such a great job on my teeth! I had an appointment today , since I thought I may have had a filling come out. But after inspecting all the teeth. He came to the conclusion, that Everything was all Right. Nothing needed to be done.
    I was so glad when I heard the great news , that he didn’t see anything wrong with my teeth 😂. Because I was so worried that there was. I guess I’m just a little to OCD and think there is something wrong 🤣....But he just said, Stop Worrying and it’s nothing! 😉
    Yay For no cavities!! No Shots !! Haha😁
