Tip: De-Stress Your Dental Care
Keeping your oral health safe does not need to be a stressful experience. However, if you don’t have things organized, it can certainly cause some frustration or anxiety. Here’s what we suggest, so you can de-stress your dental hygiene (and more): Schedule visits in advance, make sure your cabinets are fully stocked with the products you need, and decide the best way to maximize your time during the morning and evening (so you brush and floss without pressure).
Tip: De-Stress Your Life
If you’re feeling stressed in your daily life, the stress can end up affecting your oral health. It may make you feel upset, while it is then expressed through your teeth and jaws. Bruxism (grinding or clenching) as well as TMJ disorder (problems with jaw joint function) are often the result of or made worse from stress. Seek treatment from us and learn to manage stress.
Tip: De-Stress Your Sleep
Your sleep is stressful if you’re suffering from sleep apnea. It means you’re not breathing for hundreds of moments throughout the night. See us for treatment, so you can enjoy relaxing, truly restful sleep again.
