Can hormonal problems such as polycystic ovarian syndrome have a negative effect on teeth? If so how and is there any evidence or proof of this via a study?

  • Any kind of harmonal imbalance in the body whether it is physiological or pathological can cause dental problems. In physiological imbalance like in pregnancy, pregnancy gingivitis is quite common occurance and in puberty, puberty gingivitis is quite common. Similaryl in pathological imbalance, the oral tissues are affected and most commonly are gums. So polycystic ovarian syndrome may affect oral health.
