Don’t Let Stress Hurt Your Smile

Don't Take Stress Out On Your Teeth Custer Here at Destination Dentistry, we have noticed more and more patients with stress-related dental issues. Custer men and women may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health.

Mouth sores, clenching and grinding, periodontal disease, and poor oral hygiene can all be exacerbated by stress.

Those who have difficulty managing stress need to realize that it can increase the risk of getting mouth sores such as canker and cold sores. Most canker sores only last 7-10 days, but for relief from the irritation, we recommend our patients pick up an over-the-counter topical anesthetic at any Black Hills, Southern Hills, or Mount Rushmore drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out Custer residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at Destination Dentistry our knowledgeable staff can determine if a night guard or other dental appliance is appropriate to reduce grinding.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is exacerbated by stress because stress can result in an increase in dental plaque.

And Custer dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in the Black Hills, Southern Hills, and Mount Rushmore areas find that they eat more sugary snacks when they’re under stress.

If you’re concerned about the effect stress can have on your teeth, schedule an appointment at Destination Dentistry today. We offer sedation dentistry, tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic dentistry, and TMJ/TMD treatment. We hope to hear from you soon!

Testimonials
  • We have been to many dentist's and this is the first one we don't mind coming back to. Very friendly staff and excellent work! Couldn't be happier and so glad a friend told us about them 😊
    —Bissell F.
  • Outstanding dental care. Dr. Rebecca was very thorough so she discovered problems that my previous dentist missed. The staff is warm, friendly, caring and efficient. There is no reason to drive to the city for excellent dental care.
    —Lee F.
  • …I had no discomfort (with the laser). Yes, an awareness of ’something done’, but no pain what so ever! You did a good job Doc. If anyone wants to ask me, I’ll tell them. It’s time for the old Bard Parker blade to be relegated to the history file. Thank you for your skills.
    —Dr. Art L., M.D.
  • Congratulations on your beautiful Hi-tech office-and on your thirty years of working together! Also you need to know I appreciate the picture you sent me of my teeth. They are absolutely the best pictures I have ever taken. Thank you for the good service you provide.
