This post from The Fort Union Dentist in Midvale is about stress and your teeth. Most individuals have been warned about the physical effects of stress. Our doctors remind us to protect ourselves from the dangers of unmanaged stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep.
We know that we shouldn’t try to relieve stress with overeating, extreme alcohol consumption, smoking, or compulsive spending. (Even though many of us are guilty!)
Stress that is not effectively managed can influence the heart, nervous system, immune system, and digestive system. It can also affect—you guessed it—your teeth.
The obvious oral health risks are teeth grinding, jaw clenching, smoking, and the overconsumption of sugary foods. But did you know that stress can also increase plaque generation, trigger canker sores and increase the risk of gingivitis? Another problem is that when individuals are under excessive stress, they often neglect basic oral hygiene.
If you’re concerned about the impact stress can have on your teeth, set up an appointment with Grant Quayle at The Fort Union Dentist today.
