“Don’t Take Stress Out On Your Teeth, Valrico”

Valrico Don't Take Stess Out On Teeth And Prevent Tooth Replacement Hello, I’m Dr. Jeff Bynum. At my Valrico practice I have noticed more and more of my patients with stress-related dental issues. Valrico men and women may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health and can be the cause of costly dental services, such as dental crowns and bridges.

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

Valrico people who have difficulty managing stress need to realize that it can increase the risk of 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 Valrico, Brandon FL, or Riverview FL drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out Valrico residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at Five Star Dental Care our knowledgeable 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 Valrico dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in the Valrico, Brandon FL, and Riverview FL 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 Care today. We treat patients from age 30 to 80 and we offer dental implants, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and teeth whitening. We hope to hear from you soon!
