Abstract :

 Menopause is not just cessation of menstruation it is “depletion of ovarian follicle” leading to decrease of ovarian hormones. Women all over world now have to spend almost one-third of their lives in menopausal years because average life expectancy is increasing and so is the concern about the lifestyle managements of menopausal women.   Estrogen is an inhibitor of bone turnover and is used to treat osteoporosis. Various studies have demonstrated how the estrogen therapy to prevent osteoporosis in post-menopausal females cause variations in the orthodontic tooth movement. An insight from the animal studies shows how variations in estrogen level cause variation in orthodontic tooth movement. The orthodontist should be aware about the consequences of estrogen therapy, subsequent molecular changes and the increased treatment time in postmenopausal females
