In brief: Maybe

Menopause is a complex series of hormonal changes, and it is common for women in these years to lose bone density.
If superimposed on this process there is periodontal disease you will likely have a fairly rapid change in the mobility of your teeth. Occlusion must be checked and equilibrated, by doing so spread forces amongst more teeth.
