FOUR WAYSSTRESS CAN AFFECT YOUR ORAL HEALTH by Dr. Dustin Nelson www.dustinnelsondds.comDustin Nelson

Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)01 www.dustinnelsondds.comDustin Nelson Statistics reveal that among those people regularly found to be displaying outward physical symptoms of stress, 17% reported teeth grinding. This practice is known to damage tooth enamel, and lead to pain associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.

Adopting Bad Habits02 www.dustinnelsondds.comDustin Nelson Being under excessive stress affects one’s mood and daily habits. This may mean becoming sloppy or in brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. Stress is also known to result in unhealthy eating habits, such as the constant snacking of foods and drinks high in sugar. These habits increase the risk of tooth decay and subsequently other oral health maladies.

Mouth Sores03 www.dustinnelsondds.comDustin Nelson • Stress and fatigue increase the likelihood of developing canker and cold sores. • Although such lesions generally fade away within two weeks or less, the discomfort, and even embarrassment, associated with them can be unpleasant.

Gum Disease04 www.dustinnelsondds.comDustin Nelson Stress often leads to increased dental plaque. This in turn makes the development of bleeding gums, gingivitis, and even periodontal disease more likely.
