Maintaining oral health vital for women

TAKING place from August 1 to 7, the aim of Dental Health Week is to educate Australians about the importance of maintaining good oral health in every aspect of their lives.

It has three main objectives:

Promote oral health education and awareness in the general community

Motivate and educate dental professionals to promote oral health

Encourage ongoing collaboration within the dental profession

This year, Dental Health Week is focusing on the significant way that hormones can play havoc with a woman's oral health, an especially important topic in light of a recent study that revealed that 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.

Throughout the course of Dental Health Week, you will be encouraged to take a more preventive, hands-on approach to your dental health as you learn more about the ways your teeth, gums and mouth are affected during each of the pivotal phases of your life.
