While stress is a well known cause for bruxism and tooth wear, dentistry experts know there are also other effects it can have on your body. Believe it or not another problem that can develop due to stress is the dreaded periodontal disease. People who suffer this condition also have a high level of stress or depression and do not recover at the same rate as people without stress. This, coupled with the fact that people with stress and depression are at more risk to put aside their routine of oral hygiene, it can have a devastating effect on their oral health.
Another oral disease that could affect you are cold sores. Patients have a greater incidence of cold sores when they are under stress, as well as in the people who have had fever or have suffered a burn caused by the sun. Although this problem is more annoying than serious, there’s little to do but to help it heal without pain. Without managing the pain it could keep you from smiling and having a fulfilling day.
In any of the cases above we always recommend to attend both the dentist and the psychologist. In case of bruxism (which is the most obvious one) we can also provide nightguards to prevent further wear on the enamel of your teeth. Making a nightguard is easy and it will only take about an hour during your visit. If you are still wondering if you should get your dentistry done here, you could come to our clinic for your night guard, talk to the doctors and staff and make plans for a smile makeover to fix the wear on your teeth.
