your emotional state and your oral health

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.
