Is Stress Impacting Your Smile?

You may feel the stress of the day in your entire body. Your muscles may be tight, you may feel overly tired, and when you shrug your shoulders all you feel may be tight muscles pulling on everything. There are some other symptoms that you may not notice right away but could be impacting you as well. Have you heard of Bruxism?

Bruxism is grinding of your teeth at night or during the day. When your body is stressed out, this can seep into your nighttime habits causing extreme wear and tear on your jaw, teeth and overall smile.

If you wake in the morning and your jaw is sore, or you have cracked or broken teeth and you didn’t recently get into a competitive sport, we highly recommend that you contact Dr. Judy Strutz and her team in order to see if you are impacted by grinding your teeth at night. Don’t panic if you do however, there are plenty of options that can fix your smile.

For more information on Bruxism contact, Dr. Judy Strutz and her team!
