Stress and Periodontal (gum) Disease

Research has shown that stress affects our immune systems, increasing our susceptibility to infections, including the bacteria that cause gum disease.

At times, gingival tissues can show signs of inflammation that could be stress-related, as well as increased signs and symptoms of oral conditions like lichen planus.

Lichen planus is a condition where there are chronic, painful lesions on the mucous membranes of the mouth.

See your dentist, who can look for these issues during an examination and, therefore, diagnose and treat stress-related oral health problems.
