How stress can affect your oral health – Spot the signs

KILLEEN, Texas — The coronavirus pandemic has lead to consequences in oral health.

More than 70% of dentists surveyed by the American Dental Association are seeing more patients experiencing teeth grinding and clenching, which are often caused by stress.

“That can lead to all sorts of damage of the teeth, discomfort, headaches, and cracked teeth in really bad cases,” Dr. Mathew Winter said, a dentist at Smile Magic of Killeen.

Since the pandemic started he said he’s been seeing three to four times as many people with problems related to stress than before.
