You might already know that stress impacts your physical and emotional health, but did you also know that it affects your oral health too? For example, you might feel so overwhelmed by stress that you just skip brushing and flossing your teeth. While it’s understandable, it’s so important to keep up oral care habits like these, because you want to avoid dental problems later down the road (which would also stress you out!) Watch the video below to find out how stress directly affects the health of your mouth.
There are other ways that long term stress can damage your mouth. Many people grind their teeth when they’re stressed, and if you notice jaw pain throughout the day, you might benefit from our custom mouthguard. This will protect your teeth during the night while you sleep, so you won’t grind them anymore.
