dca-blog_article-07_stress-affects-oral-health

Doctors are always warning about how stress affects your body and mind, but few mention the many ways that worry can impact your oral health. Now, researchers found a direct link between stress and the state of our oral health. With new evidence showing that stress can contribute to dental problems, it’s important to know how to handle your hassles before personal strain causes dental pain.

The Dental Dangers of Stress

While we’re starting to see how stress can be a key factor in oral health, many may not be aware of the dental conditions it can cause. Check out this list of oral health risks:

  • Canker sores are a mystery to many but are often brought on by stress.
  • Dry mouth occurs when the mouth lacks moisture and often results directly from stress or drugs that depression.
  • Burning mouth syndrome is felt in pain throughout the mouth and is often attributed to psychological problems.
  • Bruxism is another name for tooth grinding and another problem caused by stress.
  • Oral lichen planus appears as a series of oral sores and is thought to be a reaction to stress-induced viral infections.
  • TMJ/TMD can be caused by the tooth grinding and trauma that often occur when facing anxiety and depression.
  • Gum disease can make you more susceptible to infections like periodontal disease.

The Harm on Dental Care

Stress is often seen in direct dental damage, but it also has an indirect impact on your dental care habits. People feeling and facing stress tend to neglect their oral health hygiene, forgetting to brush and floss correctly, and skipping regular dentist visits. Many to start to eat poorly and choose more sugary options. This eventually leads to dental problems, which only increase their anxiety. So stress does more than cause dental damage, it’s also one of the painful effects.
