Women have special needs when it comes to their oral health. The onset of menstruation, pregnancy, child birth, breast feeding and menopause can cause physical and hormonal changes. These changes can affect the teeth and the health of oral tissues. Birth control pills can increase the risk of gingivitis, and hormone replacement therapy can cause swollen, sore and bleeding gums. Good oral hygiene and dental care can decrease incidence of problems over the years.

Women are also more likely to develop zeostomia (dry mouth), temporomandibular joint pain and limited function leading to eating disorders which can be difficult physically and emotionally.
