Do you grind your teeth during your sleep, or at times when you’re under too much pressure or stress? Medically speaking, this tendency is called bruxism, and is usually done by people under a significant amount of stress; however, when bruxism happens more often or on a regular basis, especially during your sleep, this might cause dental problems and other oral complications.
Is the idea of visiting a dentist terrifying for you? You’re likely to find other people who share the same anxiety. Fear of dentists, or dentophobia, affects about five to eight percent of Americans who totally forego the advised twice a year dental checkups, while 20 percent of those who are somewhat anxious of the idea of sitting on a dental chair says that they would only go see a dentist if absolutely necessary.
