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
