The Impact Stress Has on Your Teeth

The Impact Stress Has on Your TeethAs with the rest of your body, stress can have a huge impact on your oral health. Whether you are bruxing (grinding) your teeth in your sleep or clenching your jaws every time your boss speaks, you may be causing excessive tooth wear, loosening your teeth, or getting painful joints (TMD—Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). However, the good news is that by seeking treatment from your dentist, your issues should be fixable before you cause permanent damage. With a custom-made occlusal (bite) guard, generally worn during sleep, you can protect your teeth, joints, and muscles from ongoing damage.
