Menopausal women should guard against oral diseases, especially pay attention to the health of teeth. Teeth grow in the maxilla and mandible, and the bone around the teeth is called alveolar bone. Before and after menopause, with the loss of calcium in bone, alveolar bone appears loose and atrophy, so menopausal women should pay special attention to keep teeth healthy.
As a result, the bone around the teeth shrinks, the gums on the surface shrink, and the roots gradually expose. Teeth will feel pain when they are hot and cold, sour and sweet. Exposed roots are also prone to dental caries, so before and after menopause, women are particularly prone to oral disease.
Menopausal women's saliva secretion decreased, oral self-cleaning function weakened, but also prone to oral mucosal diseases, such as dry oral mucosa, recurrent mucosal ulcer, oral lichen planus and so on.
In addition, menopausal women's endocrine disorders, also easy to cause oral mucosal sensory abnormalities. After the appearance of burning sensation of tongue mucosa, or gingivitis aggravation and other symptoms.
Women before and after menopause should pay special attention to oral hygiene. Brush your teeth in the morning and evening every day, knock your teeth before going to bed and after waking up in the morning, and massage your gums. This can slow down the absorption of alveolar bone, even promote the regeneration of alveolar bone, and prevent gingival atrophy.
After the age of 45, a woman should see a dentist once a year and have a dental scaling, so that she can keep her teeth stable in her old age and let her healthy teeth serve her whole life (in fact, not only women should insist on seeing a dentist every year, as long as conditions permit).
