It seems that women are winning the game when it comes to dental health. An article published in the Journal of Periodontology back in 2011, said that women are almost twice as likely to go for periodic dental checkups than men. They are also more likely to follow the dentist’s advice following the checkup. The study revealed that women showed lower incidences of dental plaque, calculus, and bleeding on probing, and thus better overall periodontal health. Men need to catch up soon and look out for their dental health without fearing oral surgeries or emergency dental care whenever that becomes necessary.
