Women, in particular, are being encouraged to look after their smile during Dental Health Week.
This year Dental Health Week, which runs from August 1 to 7, is focusing on the significant way that hormones can play havoc with a woman’s oral health.
It is an especially important topic in light of a recent study that revealed many women are unaware of the significant impact that various life stages have on the health of their teeth and gums.
The reality is that major life events like pregnancy, puberty, menstruation and menopause, dramatically affect the state of your dental health if you are a woman.
