ATLANTA, GA, May 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Mother's Day kicks off Women's Health Week, which is promoted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is designed to encourage communities, families and individuals to provide education on women's health problems.
One of the issues that is addressed is women's dental health. This is a very good time to learn more about women's dental health issues and take preventative measures, such as scheduling a check-up with your local Lawrenceville dentist.
Women are prone to develop dental problems that are caused by hormone fluctuations. While both genders may experience bleeding or sore gums during puberty due to high hormone levels, women also are affected by changes associated with hormone levels during pregnancy and menopause.
Female hormones can lead to changes in taste, cold sores, dry mouth and increased instances of gum disease. Poor oral hygiene during pregnancy can lead to infections that can harm both the mother and the unborn child.
"It is very important for women to visit their dentist regularly and to take good care of their teeth and gums at home. Proper brushing, flossing and rinsing will help to combat problems caused by their body's hormonal response to pregnancy and menopause," says Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management.
Women's Health Week is a good time to remind yourself and other women in your life to make an appointment with their dentist in Lawrenceville for a thorough evaluation and professional cleaning. Women should be sure to take responsibility for building great life-long dental hygiene habits.
