Women and oral health: Issues Paper
Our latest Issues Paper, Women and Oral Health , examines how sex and gender differences can influence oral health risk factors, conditions and ways of using health care. In particular, the paper highlights the impacts of hormone changes throughout the lifespan, women’s higher rates of decayed, filled or missing teeth, the impacts of eating disorders and family violence on oral health and women being more likely to report financial barriers to dental care.
