|Condition or disease|
|Periodontal Disease Quality of Life|
This cross-sectional prevalence study seeks to investigate the incidence and severity of oral health changes, specifically of periodontal conditions, among breast cancer survivors and the ways in which these outcomes affect their quality of life.
- To determine the prevalence and severity of oral conditions in postmenopausal women with early stage breast cancer using adjuvant AI therapy as compared to postmenopausal women not using adjuvant AI therapy.
- To determine if adjuvant AI therapy use is associated with greater alveolar bone loss or increased levels of bone turnover biomarkers in postmenopausal women with cancer undergoing adjuvant AI therapy compared to postmenopausal women not receiving AI therapy.
- To determine the oral health-related quality of life among postmenopausal women with early stage breast cancer who are receiving adjuvant AI therapy.
