How are Americans dealing with these difficult economic times? They're taking the stress out on their teeth, if you ask dentists. In the fall of 2009, the Chicago Dental Society surveyed more than 250 of its members to see if stressing about the economy was wreaking havoc on patients' oral health.
Nearly 75 percent of dentists surveyed said their patients reported increased stress in their lives. And 65 percent of dentists said they have seen an increase in jaw clenching and teeth grinding amongst their patients.
Jaw clenching and teeth grinding, or bruxism, can be a temporary nuisance during stressful times that causes headaches and sleep problems, but it also can cause lasting problems for your teeth and gums. It can lead to muscle inflammation, broken teeth or even damaged dental work, such as crowns and fillings.
The following tips from dentists should help you cope with the pressures of the world-before your teeth pay the price.
The survey was conducted for the Chicago Dental Society's 145th annual Midwinter Meeting, which will bring more than 30,000 dental professionals to Chicago this February. The Midwinter Meeting is a forum for dentists to learn about new products, technologies, and methods.
A tradition of working for the dental profession. The Chicago Dental Society was organized in 1864 and incorporated in 1878. The objective of the Chicago Dental Society is to encourage the improvement of the health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry and to represent the intrest of the members of the profession and the public that it serves.
