There’ s no fooling your dentist when it comes to stress. Even as you give him your biggest smile, as soon as you open your mouth he’ll know how you’ve been dealing with the problems of your daily existence. Some of these stress related dental problems can include jaw disorders, mouth sores or even gum disease.
What to do? See your dentist regularly so he can diagnose these problems early on before they develop into a real pain in the jaw. You also need to learn how to relax and exhale, combating stress with exercise or meditation. Mindfulness is a scientifically proven practice that improves both your mental and physical health, by keeping your attention on the present moment.
And, of course, you have until February 13th to enter Gallery57Dental’s contest and win a couple’s massage, a delicious way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and destress!
