Stress is simply a part of life. To be sure, some people have more than others and everyone copes with life’s stresses differently. Very often, stress translates into a physical manifestation. For example, perhaps someone you know bites their nails when they’re stressed. Others eat and eat and eat. Teeth grinding and clenching, also called bruxism, is another common stress-induced habit. Willpower can help stop nail biting and overeating, but not teeth grinding because this usually happens at night while you’re sleeping. Fortunately, Drs. Marchese at Arbor Dental Care are the Lisle dentist you can come to for relief from bruxism.
