Tell me more about these changes that happen
Hormonal changes in your body during puberty, pregnancy and menopause can have detrimental effects on your oral health. Providing you find a dentist in Harley Street who takes a holistic view to your oral health care, these aspects of your health that are often overlooked, will be well taken care of.
Addressing concerns at their root cause will ensure that problems are resolved, rather than just masked or patched up time and time again. We know that during pregnancy, for example, teeth become more susceptible to damage and decay for a number of reasons.
Many women experience morning sickness during their first trimester which can mean that they are subject to nausea and vomiting for several weeks. Although normal, the impact on your teeth is anything but and we make sure that extra attention is taken to see that the enamel on your teeth is not eroded significantly from the additional acid that they are exposed to.
Extreme changes in hormones in conjunction with this can lead to some real issues with your teeth during and after pregnancy. By speaking with a professional as soon as you find out that you are pregnant can minimise these risks.
Any other time that hormonal changes in the body are significant, such as puberty or menopause, can also increase the risk of the damage to your teeth and gums. We do urge all of our patients to maintain a regular schedule in which to visit us so that we can monitor such subtle changes in your mouth and react accordingly and swiftly.
What can we do to help?
Preventive care is perhaps one of the single biggest treatments that we offer our patients when faced with natural changes in their lives that can have a detrimental effect on the health of their teeth. By understanding how you can best care for your teeth on a daily basis at home and by following up on your progress frequently, you are able to give your smile the best chance possible at remaining strong and healthy for life.
We look forward to working with you and allowing you to enjoy the changes that life brings, knowing that the health of your smile will not suffer unnecessarily.
