Women and Oral Health

Every year, the Australian Dental Association runs a major oral health promotion event. Dental Health Week took place during 1st-7th of August.

This year the event focussed on the role of hormones in women’s oral health, and how the various stages of a woman’s life can dramatically affect the health of their teeth and gums.

Topics include:

  • Can pregnancy increase your risk of tooth decay?
  • Menopause – suffering from dry or burning mouth?
  • The oral health effects of puberty, and more.
