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 Just Smiles General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Hilliard 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 Just Smiles General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Hilliard, we offer complete dental care with our general dentistry. If stress or trauma damages a tooth, we can treat that too. People from Columbus, Galloway, and Galena trust us with their dental health. Fill out a patient form and contact us today!
