Don’t Let Stress Hurt Your Smile

March 18th, 2016

Don't Take Stress Out On Your Teeth White Plains Hello, I’m Dr. Ira Handschuh. At my White Plains practice I have noticed more and more of my patients with stress-related dental issues. White Plains men and women may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health.

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

White Plains 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 Scarsdale, Westchester County, or New Castle drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out NYC residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at The Dental Design Center our efficient 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 White Plains dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in the Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle 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 The Dental Design Center today. We offer Invisalign, teeth whitening, restorative dentistry, and periodontal disease. We hope to hear from you soon!
