BRANDON, FL, March 14, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- What stressors are you dealing with this year? Are you worried about your taxes? Is the Valentine's Day budget still causing you problems? Is 2014 bringing in piles of work? Everyone deals with different stressors in different ways. For the most part, people eat, vent or sweat out their stress; however, some people leave it building, until it causes health issues.
Recently, have you noticed that your jaw and teeth are a little sore? Does it feel like you have been grinding your teeth all night? Well, that's probably because you have. Teeth grinding is a common response to stress, but most people don't know it because the grinding and clenching occurs at night.
"Teeth grinding is not something a patient should ignore. If your stress is constant, your teeth grinding may also be a continuous threat to your oral health. Added pressure and friction between the teeth can break down the enamel, causing openings for the bacteria to invade the tooth," explains Dr. Conte, Brandon, FL dentist. "Thus, a patient can come into a dental appointment with a cavity or chipped tooth."
To protect your teeth from damage, Dr. Conte recommends wearing a night guard to absorb the majority of the jaw's pressure. The fitted night guard will be the buffer for your teeth.
On February 25th, Dr. Conte posted to his Facebook, offering a night guard special. Patients can get $100 off a night guard. The regular price is $598. In the long run, it's a great deal for the sake of your smile. Hurry and grab the offer because it expires on 4/15/14.
If grinding has caused you to chip a tooth, you may also talk to your dentist about receiving a veneer or crown at Brandon dentist office to cover and protect the tooth. If grinding is an issue, a crown may be a better choice compared to veneers.
