Can Hormone Replacement Therapy Help With Gum Disease?

Hormone replacement therapy has been developed to help women manage the symptoms of menopause, but according to recent studies, it appears that HRT could also contribute to a better dental health.

Key takeaways:

– Changes in estrogen levels (which are characteristic of menopause) entail a higher risk of gum disease, inflammation, and tooth loss

– The study found that one in four post-menopausal women lost one or more of their teeth within five years

– Women taking hormone replacement therapy were less likely to experience gum disease, and some even reported an improvement in their symptoms and overall gum health

Whether you are taking HRT or not, it’s important to look after your smile by maintaining good dental hygiene practices and reporting any problems to your dentist as soon as the first symptoms appear.

Dr. Kabra has taken over the practice from Mr. Rob Bell, who is semi-retired and continues to work at the practice part-time.

Mr. Bell describes Dr. Kabra as: "a highly qualified dentist… who is likeable and friendly and I hope you will see him with the reassurance that I thoroughly recommend him."

Dr. Kabra qualified from a prestigious dental school in India, and was subsequently recruited to the UK as a dentist. He soon developed an interest in restorative & cosmetic dentistry and subsequently went on to complete a Restorative Diploma, with the respected Royal College of Surgeons. He is also an accredited trainer of newly qualified dentists. He has expertise in utilizing invisible braces to straighten teeth. He also has experience in implant dentistry and can help with snoring and sleep apnoea.

Dr. Kabra says: "I am delighted to offer a broad range of bespoke private treatments, ranging from private general dental care to orthodontics (braces to straighten teeth), dental implants (to replace missing teeth), and facial aesthetics (wrinkle relaxation & dermal fillers)".

"I look forward to meeting each of you personally in the near future and hope to continue a lasting relationship of providing you a lifetime of good oral health."
