Post-Menopausal Status May Cause Tooth Decay

Researchers from the University of Buffalo, has found that Post-menopausal// women has an increased chance of loosing their tooth. The study was reported in the Journal of Periodontology, which was conducted in 106 Post-menopausal women during a follow up of 11.7 years. The results showed 57.5% of the women in the study lost at least one tooth. Alveolar bone loss may be cause of tooth loss in Post-menopausal women, as studies has proved that loss of each millimeter of alveolar bone loss increases the risk of tooth loss.

Periodontal disease is the major cause of alveolar bone loss and the health of the teeth depends upon the integrity of the alveolar bone holding the tooth. Dr. Vincent J. Iacono President of the American Academy of Periodontology said that, “Since alveolar bone loss has been shown to be a significant factor for tooth loss in postmenopausal women, studies will be needed to determine possible aggravating effects of post menopause on the severity of periodontal disease. Until we know more, postmenopausal women will want to control periodontal disease to significantly reduce their risk of alveolar bone loss and tooth loss." Study conducted between the years 1989 and 1991, conducted for an average of 11.7 years in Post-menopausal women with an average age of 48.8 years has showed that Estrogen deficiency in Post-menopausal women may cause loss of bone minerals which can lead to increased rate of tooth loss. This study proves that Estrogen deficiency in Post-menopausal women is an important cause of Periodontal disease.

The participants of this study had participated in a past study in 1989 and 1991. The average follow-up time was 11.7 years. The age ranged from 45 to 73 and all subjects had reached menopause with the average age at 48.8 years.
