Hypodontia ( missing teeth) risk for ovarian cancer????

Hi I have come across some research  that links missing teeth and a strong risk for ovarian cancer. I have yet to bring it up with my gynocologist. Could anyone shed some light on this issue and whether or not I should sceen for ovarian cancer more frequently. I am 26 years old, have 2 missing adult premolars, the baby teeth are still there. No other risk factors for ovarian cancer. I am very concerned!
