Dynamics of periodontal tissue in me.nopause

Rezumat: Hormonal fluctuation orchestrates various gingival changes across the whole women’s life cycle. In menopausal women, the periodontal disease, as interplay between periodontal pathogenic micro flora and host tissue, is also closely influenced by changes of hormonal flux. Desquamative gingivitis and higher incidence of reduced alveolar bone density are the main complaints. Though menopause osteoporosis and periodontal disease have many similarities, the relationship between these two chronic diseases and the effect of sex hormones decline on bone resorption is still inconclusive. A better clinical interplay between dentists and gynecologists would definitely result in improved periodontal health of menopausal women. Moreover, educational courses in both specialties, aiming to highlight this topic, might be important.
Cuvinte cheie: menopause, sex hormones, desquamative gingivitis, alveolar bone density
