Put a Stop to Holiday Stress

The on-the-go holiday season whirlwind of events and celebrations can send your stress level through the roof and stress can lead to a variety of overall health and oral health problems. Studies have shown that gum disease and bruxism (tooth grinding) may be linked to high levels of stress. When youre anxious or depressed, your body produces more of the hormone cortisol, which can contribute to the risk for gum disease. People who grind their teeth tend to do it more when under stress. Grinding can wear and chip teeth and put pressure on jaw muscles and joints.1 In addition, hard times can often lead to bad-for-your-teeth habits like smoking, drinking alcohol, and skipping your nightly brushing and flossing. Follow these tips to keep your mouth and your whole self healthy and stress-free.

  • Eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Exercise on a regular basis.
  • Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation, stretching, and deep breathing.
  • Brush and floss daily.
  • Remember that some things, like the weather, are out of your hands and are not worth getting worked up about.1

Enjoy your holidays dont stress out about them!
