We all know that stress can wreak havoc on our lives causing side effects like headaches, anxiety, and insomnia. But did you know that stress can also lead to teeth grinding (also called bruxism), Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD), and eventually wear down the enamel on your teeth? When you’re stressed, your jaw muscles tighten causing issues that affect not only your teeth but also your entire craniofacial structure.
Although stress is often an unavoidable part of life, especially in the current times of uncertainty, stress management is crucial to managing a healthy life. What can you do when it seems like you have little control over what’s happening around you? Our expert has put together this report, “Clenching and Grinding Can Take a Toll on Your Teeth,” to help you manage the effects of stress-induced bruxism and TMD and find relief from tension.
