Most of us have been warned about the harmful effects of stress. Our doctors remind us to protect ourselves from the dangers of unmanaged stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep. The team at Create A Smile in Bloomington IN reminds you that stress can do a number on your teeth, too.
The obvious hazards are teeth grinding, jaw clenching, smoking, and the overconsumption of sugary foods. But did you know that stress can also exacerbate plaque production, trigger canker sores and increase the risk of gingivitis? Another problem is that when people are under excessive stress, they often neglect basic oral hygiene.
At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN we offer complete dental care with our general dentistry. If stress or trauma damages a tooth, we can treat that too. People from Ellettsville and Bedford also come to us for cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Call for an appointment today!
