A recent study showed that women are almost twice as likely to have received a regular dental check-up in the past year, and women were more likely to book the recommended treatment after going for a dental check-up.
The woman who took part in the study also had better indicators of periodontal health, which included lower incidence of dental plaque, calculus and bleeding on probing; all of which can be used as markers of periodontal disease.
The study also suggested that women have a better understanding of what oral health entails, and showed a more positive attitude towards making dental visits.
