Estrogen Receptor Variations
Related to Tooth Loss
Estrogen receptor genotypes may be connected to tooth
loss in elderly women, Japanese researchers report in the
November 14, 2001 issue of The Journal of the American
Medical Association.
Researchers studies the effect of estrogen receptor
genotype on tooth loss and alveolar height in 132 Japanese
women who visited a clinic from 1996 to 2001. Sixteen
subject had received estrogen replacement therapy for six
months or less, and one had received the therapy for four
years. None of the patients was taking other medications
that affect bone metabolism and none had a history of
tobacco use.
Researchers analyzed the subjects’ estrogen receptor
genes in blood samples. They found that one gene variant
was linked to having fewer teeth. A second gene variant
was associated with great alveolar bone loss. They
concluded that these genes might not influence alveolar
bone loss but rather alveolar bone fragility. The findings did
not change after researchers made adjustments for age and
time lapsed since menopause and estrogen replacement
therapy.
The results, according to researchers, indicate that the
type of estrogen receptor a woman carries could signal her
risk of experiencing tooth loss.
