Stress is an everyday event in most people’s lives.

Stress manifests in many ways.  In many people, it is felt and seen in their jaws and muscles.  This stress is mostly seen as either grinding or clenching of the teeth.  Over time this can break and wear down teeth as well as jaw pain, tooth sensitivity, headaches, and even ringing ears.  The best way to combat this problem is to treat yourself to a facial massage.  This massage will focus attention to the muscles that cause this problem.  If you are experiencing these symptoms in a chronic fashion, then speak with your dentist about other ways to combat your jaw disorder.
