Teeth grinding ‘linked to stress’

Tue

People are grinding their teethmore.

More dentists are seeing patients who have damaged their oral health through excessive teeth grinding, it has been revealed.

The Tennessean reported that workplace stresses and financial worries are leading to more people grinding their teeth and pointed to research from the Chicago Dental Society that showed 65 per cent of dentists have claimed an increase in treating this condition.

“I’ve seen more cracked teeth in the last six months than I have ever seen – and I have been practising for 40 years,” said Dan Hixon, a dentist in Hermitage.

Elsewhere, Divine Caroline – an online health and wellbeing publication – recently reported that investing in a night guard could be a solution to this problem for many, as the majority of people grind their teeth during their sleep and are unaware they are doing it until damage has been caused.

The publication stated that for the best results sufferers should consult a dental professional.

Brits advised on teeth grinding

People should use a mouthguard if they suffer from grinding their teeth.

People looking to stop grinding their teeth have been offered some helpful advice on the matter.

Divine Caroline – an online health and wellbeing publication – has reported investing in a night guard could be a solution for many, as the majority of people grind their teeth during their sleep and are unaware they are doing it until damage has been caused.

However, for the best results people sufferers should consult with a dental professional, as over-the-counter mouthguards often do not fit properly and can cause other problems for users, such as preventing them from sleeping due to discomfort.

Elsewhere, the CNN Wellness blog recently reported not coping with stress properly can lead to real problems with oral health as people tend to grind their teeth more.

It noted that in many cases, people who are stressed do not realise they are grinding their teeth as they do it in their sleep, but this does not mean the damage caused is any less severe.
