After Menopause Women Should See Their Dentist More Often

I found this bit of information in the Parade Magazine insert from the Omaha World Herald Sunday Edition, Stay Healthy. It stated that a new study from Case Western Reserve University found that women in the age group of menopause are at greater risk for periodontal disease than those who are not. In this case it was recommended that there is a greater need for frequent professional cleanings (up to four a year)-to remove the hard plaque (tartar) that can trigger gum disease and weaken the jaw bones.
