Don’t Take Stress Out On Your Teeth, Brandon FL

Hello, I’m Dr. Jeff Bynum. At my Brandon FL cosmetic dentistry practice I have noticed more and more of my patients with stress-related dental issues. People may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health.

Mouth sores, clenching and grinding, gum disease, and poor oral hygiene can all be exacerbated by stress.

Brandon FL people who have difficulty managing stress need to realize that it can increase the risk of having a dental emergency or getting mouth sores such as cankers and cold sores. Most canker sores only last 7-10 days, but for relief from the irritation, we recommend our patients pick up an over-the-counter topical anesthetic at any local drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out Brandon FL residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at Five Star Dental our fun staff can determine if a night guard or other dental appliance is appropriate to reduce grinding.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is exacerbated by stress because stress can result in an increase in dental plaque.

And our cosmetic dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in Brandon FL and the surrounding areas find that they eat more sugary snacks when they’re under stress.

If you’re concerned about the effect stress can have on your teeth, schedule an appointment at Five Star Dental today. We offer dental crowns, dental bridges, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry and more. We hope to hear from you soon!
