Most of us have been warned about the harmful effects of stress. Our doctors remind us to protect ourselves from the dangers of unmanaged stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep. The team at Jurich Dental Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Antonio reminds you that stress can do a number on your teeth, too.
The obvious hazards are teeth grinding, jaw clenching, smoking, and the overconsumption of sugary foods. But did you know that stress can also exacerbate plaque production, trigger canker sores and increase the risk of gingivitis? Another problem is that when people are under excessive stress, they often neglect basic oral hygiene.
At Jurich Dental Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Antonio we offer complete dental care with our family dentistry. People from Shavano Park, Leon Springs, and Beorne also come to us for restorative dentistry, and much more. Call for an appointment today!
