Periodontal Disease Due to Menopause

periodontal disease due to menopauseFemale hormones can affect your health in some surprising ways. Gum disease is caused by the bacteria found in plaque, but women are more susceptible to this common dental health problem due to the hormonal changes that can occur throughout life. Puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy can all trigger periodontal problems, but menopause tends to trigger a sharp uptick in the diagnosis of periodontal disease. The hormonal changes of menopause can cause your gums to become more sensitive and react to the changing hormone levels.

The increased sensitivity can cause bleeding, and gums may pull away from teeth. This creates periodontal pockets, which allow bacteria and plaque to accumulate. The pockets can become deeper over time, allowing more buildup, and eventually, you may even lose a tooth. Early symptoms can be easy to overlook but may include redness, swelling, or chronic bad breath. Your gums may bleed easily when you brush or floss. Periodontal disease is not the only dental health problem that can develop in response to the changes of menopause. Women can develop burning tongue, dry mouth, tooth loss, and other potentially serious dental issues.

Close attention to your dental hygiene and regular dental visits are a great start to a healthier smile, but they may not be enough. If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease during menopause, you may need to undergo a deep cleaning to control the infection and reduce the risk of long-term damage. Natural menopause supplements such as DON’T PAUSE can also help by giving you the edge you need against the 45 different menopause symptoms that women can experience, including periodontal disease and burning tongue. DON’T PAUSE uses natural herbs, vitamins, and antioxidants to support healthy function as your body transitions through menopause. One to two capsules a day can provide relief during and after menopause. Contact us today to place your order.
