Can Stress Affect Your Oral Health?

14th August 2012 | Posted by: Helen Hewison

Mouth Ulcer

Oral Ulcers: No one knows what causes these small, painful blisters in your mouth however, doctors agree that triggers which may increase their likelihood include stress, injury, infection, fatigue and allergies. Pain from a mouth ulcer generally lessens in a few days and the sores usually heal without treatment in about a week or two.If sores are large, painful or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or non-prescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.

Teeth Grinding: can cause excessive wear on teeth, tooth sensitivity, small fractures in teeth, headaches, jaw and ear pain. A simple solution is the use of a mouth guard which can help reduce the effects of grinding

Dry Mouth: medication used for reducing stress can cause dry mouth. Maintaining a sufficient flow of saliva is essential as saliva helps eliminate and neutralise the harmful effects of sugar and acids, which can lead to gum disease

Gum Disease: prolonged stress affects the immune system, increases the risk of infections and worsens it; also during periods of major stress we tend to neglect certain parts of healthy lifestyle, such as oral hygiene and nutrition
