There are certain times in a woman’s life when her hormone levels will shift significantly. Oral health issues often accompany these hormone shifts, common prior to menstruation and during menopause. However, you can lower your risk of gum disease and other complications during these phases by simply practicing good oral hygiene. This means brushing your teeth effectively twice a day for at least two minutes with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day as well. You should also schedule regular dental visits to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Be aware that even if you take great care of your teeth, you may still experience some oral discomfort as hormone levels shift inside your body. It should subside as your hormone levels rebalance.
