This fact sheet provides an overview of women's oral health, it's relationship with other health conditions and recommendations for improving women's oral health.
Oral health is important for good quality of life. Without good oral health, everyday activities such as eating, speaking and socialising can be difficult. Women and men have different oral health risk factors, conditions and ways of using health care. Oral health is also strongly influenced by other factors, particularly socio-economic status.
