Does Your Emotional State Affect Your Oral Health?

You may be surprised to learn that your emotions and how you feel can affect the state of your oral health. If you are not feeling your best and have the blues, you may not feel like cleaning your teeth properly, eating the right foods, or even visiting medical professionals for regular appointments, such as oral hygiene examination appointments in our office. Over time, this behavior can lead to serious problems with your teeth and gums, such as dental decay and gum disease.

sleep apnea and your daily life

How Sleep Apnea Can Affect Your Daily Life

At NYC Smile Spa, we do more than just help patients with their oral health. We are also passionate about helping those who suffer from sleep apnea. If you are unfamiliar, sleep apnea is a serious condition in which a person stops breathing multiple times throughout the night. It occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax during sleep, blocking the airway and restricting your breathing. Those who suffer from sleep apnea may experience issues such as severe snoring, headaches, dry mouth, and trouble sleeping.

dental phobia

What Is Dental Phobia?

At NYC Smile Spa, we specialize in treating patients who suffer from dental phobia, a serious, often paralyzing, fear of visiting the dentist. Many people who struggle with dental phobias stop visiting the dentist altogether and often end up developing serious issues with their oral health. Eventually, this can lead to problems with eating and living everyday life. Postponing routine dental care and necessary treatments can lead to more complex dental problems and the need for additional treatments. This is not ideal for someone who suffers from dental anxiety. It can become a vicious cycle.
