We know this is “the most wonderful time of year,” but let’s be honest—it can also be the most stressful time of year, too. Just thinking about everything you need to do can be stressful! There are all the gifts you need to buy, the parties to plan and attend, grocery shopping and meal planning for your holiday dinner—and all of that is on top of your normal routine that may include work, school, kids, carpool, and so on and so forth. All of that stress can manifest itself in physical reactions within your body. One of the more common reactions is when we clench or grind our teeth. Anyone can experience occasional grinding and clenching, also called bruxism. Problems arise, however, when bruxism becomes a habit. In that case, you may need treatment in order to protect your teeth and eliminate the jaw discomfort that may develop as a result. Dr. Madhav is the dentist Plano, TX, residents turn to for relief.
