Stress can pose a danger to your oral health. If you are really stressed, you might start grinding your teeth, which can lead to major problems that require the attention of the Belmont dentist.
Teeth grinding, or bruxism, leads to headaches and soreness in the jaw. Without the proper attention, this might cause you to chip, fracture, or break teeth. The dentist can set you up with a custom mouth guard that prevents you from grinding your teeth even when you are feeling extremely stressed.
No matter what is happening in your personal life, it is important to schedule regular visits with your dentist. These appointments give the dentist a chance to deeply clean your teeth and look for signs of other issues.
