Women’s Oral Health contributes to Good Overal Health

October is Breast Cancer month and all women are reminded to get a mammogram for early detection in the fight against breast cancer. Dr Rotem hopes that you will take the time to care for yourself with this simple, lifesaving exam.

Did you Know that a Woman’s Oral Health is the window to Her Overall Health?

As stated by the surgeon general, good oral health is essential to good overall health, specifically for women.

During various phases of a woman’s life, she has unique oral health requirements. With hormonal changes, a woman’s gums can react differently to plaque, inviting gum disease. That’s why women must be especially diligent in proper brushing and flossing during these unique changes in her life.

Gum disease, left untreated, can lead to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and serious respiratory problems. As gum disease is painless until in an advanced stage, it can be missed by your own individual exam.
