Menopause

Menopause and the impact on your oral health

Can your teeth hurt during menopause?

Women may experience unexplained pain in the mouth. Some women experience a burning sensation or pain in their teeth during menopause and even afterwards, with some experiencing changes in their sense of taste.

Do your teeth change during menopause?

As oestrogen levels fall during and after menopause, women are more likely to lose bone density. This can be indicated by receding gums, as this exposes more of your tooth, which makes your tooth more susceptible to decay.

Is a sore tongue a symptom of menopause?

Women experiencing menopause may experience dry mouth symptoms, frequent thirst, and hoarseness. Sometimes, the condition can lead to burning sensations in the mouth and tongue (known as burning mouth syndrome).

How can I protect my teeth as my hormone levels change?

Keeping your gums healthy requires brushing and flossing every day, as well as regular checkups with your dentist and hygienist to ensure any potential problems are identified early.
