Since April is Stress Awareness Month, we wanted to talk about how stress affects your oral health. As difficult as life can feel for many people right now, it’s still important to keep your smile as healthy as possible. A few indications that stress has impacted your grin:
- You’re neglecting your oral hygiene. Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once may not be a high priority when you’re stressed! However, it’s even more stressful when you have to deal with a dental problem. Make sure you keep up your regular oral regimen.
- You’ve been skipping your regular checkups. If you’re busy or stressed, the last thing that’s probably on your mind is getting your teeth cleaned! However, by maintaining these biannual appointments, you’re staying on top of your oral health and avoiding extensive issues later down the road.
- You’re grinding your teeth. One of the many reasons behind a TMJ disorder or teeth grinding habit is stress! Luckily, we have a solution for you. Our TMJ treatment can relieve your pain and make chewing comfortable again!
