Restoring Smiles: The Rise in Broken Teeth and the Connection to Stress

In the wake of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, an unexpected trend has emerged within the realm of dental health – a surge in cases of broken or chipped teeth. The combination of heightened stress levels, altered routines, and increased anxiety has taken a toll on our collective wellbeing, manifesting in various ways, including our oral health. At Atwood Advanced Dentistry, we understand the importance of addressing these issues and providing expert care to restore not just your smile, but your overall dental health.

The Connection Between Stress and Oral Health

It comes as no surprise that the stress and uncertainty brought about by the pandemic have had a significant impact on our mental and physical health. One common manifestation of this stress is bruxism, a condition characterized by teeth grinding and clenching, often during sleep. Over time, this can lead to not only worn-down enamel but also cracked or broken teeth, jaw pain, and even more serious disorders affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

The Role of Restorative Dentistry
