Birth Control and Oral Health


Posted on 5/23/2022 by Henricksen Family Dental
Birth Control and Oral HealthHormones alter during a woman's life at various phases. Hormones have an impact on a woman's mood, emotions, hunger, and overall health. Women today have access to a wide range of different types of birth control options. To consider, each has its own hormonal levels and adverse effects. The total health of a woman, including her dental health, might be affected by side effects. What is the nature of their relationship? To recognize the link between birth control and oral health, we must first understand how hormonal changes might influence dental health.

Hormonal Changes Affect Your Health


During specific stages of life, with adolescence, PMS, pregnancy, and menopause, women should pay extra attention to their dental health. Some women will have gum disease-like symptoms, such as bleeding or swollen gums, when their estrogen and progesterone levels fluctuate dramatically. Because of the inflammation that arises from gum disease, a woman's smile can be affected in more ways than one. Gum disease is linked to diabetes, stroke, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, and some forms of cancer. What is the relationship between birth control and dental health?
