Course Description

Different stages in women’s lives may cause them to be more susceptible to oral health problems. Puberty, pregnancy and menopause are three of the stages that women have a greater risk of having oral health concerns due to changes in hormone levels. Some of the problems women may experience during these life stages are gingivitis, periodontitis, xerostomia, tooth mobility, tooth loss and tooth decay. This course will provide an overview of these three life stages and review how dental professionals can come along side of patients to provide optimal oral health throughout the lifespan.
