How Stress Can Affect Your Teeth

Stress And Your Teeth

Stress can give you a headache, tummy ache, and may also affect your oral health.

At your dental checkup, don’t be surprised when your dentist asks you whether you are stressed. Some oral conditions are signs of stress, such as tooth wear, facial and jaw pain, the presence of cold sores, and popping, creaking, locking or pain of the jaw joints. It is important to see your dentist at the first sign of any discomfort in your mouth as these conditions can be a sign of an underlying health problem affecting more than just your teeth.
