Stress seems to be an ailment of the 21st Century. It not only affects our psychological life, but it leads to the deterioration of body organs.
Among those, it greatly affects our teeth.
The damaging effects to the teeth structure comes from clenching and grinding upon the stress. The power of those habitual wrong doings imposed onto the teeth causes severe loss of enamel exposing dentin, which is much softer and wears off much quicker from that moment on. That will alter the vertical dimension of your lower face and will make you look older than you are. Aside from the above, it also causes the fractures of the teeth. The dental intervention at this point is needed.
Discuss those matters with your dentist.
My office recommends the custom made mouthguard to prevent the above from happening.
Happy Smiles!

Diabetes and gum disease
Diabetes reduces the body's resistance to infection. There is a proven risk of developing gum disease when you have an elevated blood sugar. In reverse, the gum disease makes it hard to keep the blood sugar levels in check. Make sure that you brush your teeth after every meal and floss daily. Regular visits to the dentist are a must. Also, keeping your blood sugar level checked on a regular basis helps. Talk to your physician about it and discuss the matter with your dentist. Both of these professionals know the topic very well, and will be happy to help you.

Why are sealants necessary?
Cavities form, when acid breaks down the protective enamel surface of the tooth. Your molar teeth have pits and grooves to help grind food which can make it easy for cavities to develop.
Plaque, (thin film of bacteria) envelopes the teeth all the time and produces the acid that causes decay.
It is difficult to clean inside deep pits and grooves. Sealants can protect your teeth from decay. The earlier sealants are applied, the greater the protection. Both children and adults can benefit from this preventative measure.

Researchers have known for years, that poor oral health-gum disease,is asociated with higher risk of getting pancreatic cancer. Now, researchers have found that two species of bacteria that have "home" in infected gums sharply increase the risk of getting pancreatic cancer. Regular visits to the dentist and caring for an excellent oral health is very important. Happy Smiles:)

Dark chocolate (as opposed to milk or white chocolate) contains healthful flavanoids that are also found in fruits,red wine,vegetables and tea. Dark chocolate may control blood sugar "spikes" to help reduce the risk of diabetes. Remember to limit your enjoyment to small portions of it, because it contains saturated fats and sugar!

If you do not brush and floss your teeth every day the bacterial plaque that accumulates during the course of the day on your teeth and gums can release bacteria into your blood stream. In reverse, this causes the inflammation of the blood vessels and heart problems. See the dentist every six months for a check up.

It is of great importance to take care of your mouth as you do the rest of your body. Diabetes reduces the body's resistance to infection, therefore increasing the risk of developing gum disease. Dry mouth can lead to tooth decay, as saliva helps to protect the teeth and gums from bacterial invasion as the means of cleansing your mouth. Some systemic diseases and medications can cause dry mouth. Those are just two of many other general health issues that can influence your dental health.
Happy smiles :)
