When you deal with stress of any kind, you may assume that it’s just par for the course in life and ignore it. As a result, rather that choose to do something about the issue, you may try to overlook tension, upset, and any other issue associated with what can turn into general smile-related stress, as the issue you experience continues. From our Rancho Cucamonga, CA team’s perspective, this isn’t the best approach. Instead, we strongly suggest addressing any and all stress that may have a potential influence on your oral health, so you’re keeping your smile nice and safe. Consider some easy to understand examples!
#1: Stress Can Worsen Bruxism
Maybe you’re stressed on a daily basis, whether it’s about something serious or just a bit of general anxiety, and instead of addressing it, you keep on moving forward. While having an optimistic attitude is wonderful, we remind you that it can lead to damage for your teeth. Keep in mind that when you stress, particularly if you have bruxism disorder, you’re making matters worse! By addressing tension, etc., you help offer oral muscles relief, so grinding and clenching can get better, not worse. Of course, you should also be receiving treatment for this oral health issue from our team!
#2: Stress Can Lead To TMJ Disorder
Do you know what else may develop or worsen if you’re stressing but you’re not addressing it? Remember that internalized stress can turn into muscle tension, which often gathers around your jaw joints. Too much tension can place pressure on those joints, called TMJs, which can then lead to (or exacerbate) TMJ disorder or TMD. Address the stress in your life, so you can give these joints a break, as you keep the functional aspect of your oral health in good shape.
