|Stress can do a lot to the body and when it is not under control, you will notice many of the negative side effects that take place.
This is mostly because the stress is causing the body a lot of havoc that would not otherwise happen if the person was relaxed, did what they had to do and ensured that they kept a calm, collected attitude throughout the entire transaction.
With this being said, it is important to think about the oral health that you have and whether or not your stress is harming it.
Stress and Your Oral HealthStress, of course, can cause problems with your overall health. However, did you know that it can also cause your teeth problems, too?
Grinding and clenching the teeth can be caused by stress that comes with everyday life. Not only that, but when the person does either of these things, they may not notice they are doing them.
They are trying to release the tension they are under. In addition to this, stress also causes the person to smoke if they are a smoker, which is extremely bad for the teeth. This can also reduce the amount that the person eats, reducing the nutrition that they have.
