Yes, we see those tell-tale signs of stress. Long working hours, children to attend to, running errands – we’ve seen it all. We know how this can adversely affect your emotional and physical well-being. But are you aware that it can also affect your teeth? Technically, these two are not commonly associated – but a strong link does exist.

Do you find yourself waking up with an ache in the jaw? It is possible that grinding (bruxism) is affecting your teeth with stress manifesting itself in a number of ways. If left untreated, it can begin to affect your teeth as well as dental restorations including fillings, bridges and crowns – causing you more pain. Symptoms can vary from constant headache, sore jaw muscles to sensitive teeth. Dr. Priyank Mathur from Smilekraft Dentistry says preventive and restorative dentistry can definitely be of your help!

What can be done?

It would be rather easy to say that maybe you should try to reduce your stress, but we all know how that isn’t always possible. Meanwhile, it is essential to limit damage done to your teeth in the form of mild inflammatory and muscle relaxant medicines.

Custom-made night guards to the rescue!

A relatively unobtrusive night guard made perfectly to match your set of teeth should make life easier. The night guard is worn over your upper teeth so that your lower teeth cannot bite or grind against them, giving your jaw joints and muscles a much-needed rest so they can recover.

Your visit to Smilekraft Dentistry will be followed with a simple procedure – assessing your teeth as well as bite and adjusting it through the use of advanced techniques.
