How Stress Affects Your Teeth

You might already know that severe or chronic stress isn’t healthy for your heart, but did you know that it’s also bad for your teeth? Stress can increase your risk of bruxism, which is a disorder that involves teeth grinding. People with bruxism often grind their teeth while they’re asleep without realizing it. To learn more about bruxism, watch this quick video.

This video explains that jaw soreness or pain, frequent headaches, and chipped, fractured, or broken teeth can all be the result of bruxism. It’s even possible to develop dizziness or vertigo. Some people with bruxism may also have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this complex problem. Talk to your dentist in Renton, WA about getting a custom-fitted biteguard to wear at night.
