It’s official. Women and men are not created dentally equal. Of course, good dental hygiene habits are equally important for all people, regardless of gender. However, growing evidence shows that women may be significantly more susceptible to serious health consequences from poor oral health. Even oral cancer, which used to affect men 6 times more than women now affects men only 2 times as often as women. In fact, in every season of a woman’s life, special precautions should be taken to preserve oral health.
