In brief: Tooth loss

Menopause does not mean tooth loss.
Tooth loss is a function of poor oral hygiene, gum disease, bone loss (due to infection of the gum and not menopause or osteoporosis), tooth decay, accidents. So do a good home care, see your dentist for regular check ups and cleaning. And make sure you ask about the health of your gums.
