Stress can affect our bodies in more ways than one. In fact, you may not even know that some of the problems you are having are a results of high levels of stress. People around the world experience issues with their teeth due to these high stress levels.
Some of the more common issues associated with stress are teeth grinding and jaw clenching. This not only causes permanent damage to your teeth, it can also lead to chronic issues with your jaw muscles that are often painful and difficult to manage on your own.
Other issues are less well known. Stress can lead to the development of canker sores and can even increase your likelihood of developing periodontal disease.
