How stress can affect your teeth

Share

I bet many of you didn’t know that stress can have a big impact on your oral health. Knowing how can affect you may help you avoid these problems.

Gum Disease

Studies have shown that at times of stress, gum deterioration increases substantially.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, especially during the day, is mostly caused by stress and will gradually wear your teeth away. This can sometimes cause excessive tooth wear and when it gets to this stage, it can be difficult to correct.

TMJD

This can be caused by tooth clenching and grinding. The typical symptoms are pain in and around your jaw joint.

Immune System

Stress can weaken your immune system which means that you may be more likely to suffer from dental infections.
