Don’t Take Stress Out On Your Teeth, Alexandria

Don't Take Stress Out On Your Teeth Alexandria Hello, we’re Dr. James D. Geren and Dr. Zeyad Mady. At our Alexandria cosmetic dentistry practice I have noticed more and more of our patients with stress-related dental issues. Alexandria 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.

Alexandria 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 Alexandria area drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out Alexandria residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry our continuing education 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.

Alexandria dental patients may find that when they are under stress, it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people 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 a family dentistry appointment at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry today. We treat patients from of all ages and we offer cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants, dental crowns and more. We hope to hear from you soon!
