We all know stress can impact our health, but did you know that stress can also impact the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums?
When we experience stress, the following conditions can occur as a result:
#1 Canker Sores
While stress may not be the direct cause of canker sores, the presence of stress can certainly increase the chance that these sores might develop.
#2 Cold Sores
Also known as fever blisters, cold sores under the nose or around the chin can occur as a result of stress.
#3 Teeth Grinding
If you have ever caught yourself clenching your teeth in a moment of stress, it may not surprise you that teeth grinding can occur as a result of stress.
