Did you know that your dentist can often tell if you’re under a lot of stress just by looking at your teeth and gums?

That’s because stress will always find a way to manifest itself physically throughout your body, and that can include inside your mouth. From worn, cracked teeth to gum inflammation and infection, mental health struggles can result in involuntary clenching and grinding of your teeth and a weakened immune system. 

But we can provide custom solutions for TMJ and teeth grinding before it takes a toll on your smile! If you’re experiencing persistent pain and tension in your jaw, head, neck, or face, then be sure to visit us to find out if you could benefit from an oral appliance to relieve the pressure being placed on your jaw joint and teeth.

Call Summit Dental at 201-366-7001 for our Hackensack office to schedule an appointment, or call at 201-347-1417 for our Tenafly office to schedule.
