The holiday season is approaching, and that can be a stressful time for many people.

Your Cincinnati dentists want to make sure that stress doesn’t put your smile at risk!

You may not realize it, but stress can physically manifest itself throughout your body, including your mouth. It might even happen while you’re sleeping.

Teeth grinding is something you might do without knowing it in response to stressful circumstances, and this can aggravate problems with your jaw joint, or TMJ.

Not only does this involuntary habit wear down and damage your teeth, but it can also create pain and muscle tension in your head, face, jaw, neck, and shoulders.

Check out today’s video to hear Veronica talk about a surprising solution to her teeth grinding and how it’s improved her sleep and her oral health!
