| March 2021: Tips, eNews & More!
Spring should be knocking on our door soon (maybe, hopefully!), as we head into longer, warmer days in March. Normally, this is the time for our children to excitedly prepare for spring break or for us to declutter our home. However, this year the pandemic has changed all that, and therefore, it is more important than ever to check in with your physical and mental health.
Stress brought on by the pandemic can directly affect your oral health by causing an increase in teeth grinding and jaw clenching, also known as bruxism. Take a look at our article below to see if you have the symptoms of bruxism, and contact our office to ask how we can help. March is also a good time to check-in with us on your overall oral health, whether it is for a dental cleaning or to help detect any potential issues. As always, prevention is better than cure, so book an appointment with us today!
Have a safe and healthy month,
Dr. Kotansky and Team
|Is Stress During the Pandemic Causing You Pain?
With the additional stress we've all felt lately, have you found yourself grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws more? Do you experience increased facial pain?
Well, you're not alone and we can help!
This condition is known as bruxism, where you may unconsciously clench your teeth while you're awake or grind them during sleep. This can lead to other conditions such as sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, headaches, damaged teeth, and other oral health problems.
