Unexpected Stress in Your Life? Don’t Forget Your Smile

Rockford cosmetic dental and tooth implants stress oral hygiene

When you suddenly have to juggle extra responsibilities, some are bound to get dropped. Perhaps you are going through a divorce or you became the caregiver for an ailing parent. Perhaps you took on a second job or started night school to earn an advanced degree. A new baby, marriage, career, or move can be exciting but also overwhelming. It’s okay to feel stressed and it can sometimes be helpful to take a break, but you should never take a break from your dental health routine.

Importance of Oral Hygiene

Sometimes you feel too exhausted to brush and you skip regular check-ups and cleanings. When life hands you extra challenges it can be easy to get forgo oral hygiene, but Dr. Bruce Stewart and Dr. Eric Hull want to remind you to think about the possible consequences of neglecting your smile.

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth and Gum Pain
  • Bad Breath
  • Infection
  • Tooth Loss

If your plate is already full, then don’t add poor oral health to an already overwhelming list. Let the car go unwashed for a few weeks. Record your favorite show to watch later when things slow down. Postpone that kitchen remodel. But keep your smile healthy – it really will make your life easier, healthier, and happier.

Protect Your Mouth, from Dr. Stewart

Categories: Oral Safety

April is National Facial Protection Month and a good time to think again about protecting your children’s teeth (and your own) with a sports mouth guard. Everyone expects football players to wear mouth guards. However, spring sports can be just as dangerous to the teeth as football. Dr. Stewart had an emergency call several years ago from a young man who broke off his two front teeth, one right at the gum line, while playing soccer. About six years ago the son of one of our team members broke his two front teeth playing baseball. He needed root canals on both of his front teeth and will eventually need veneers when the teeth discolor.

The National Youth Sports Safety Foundation tells us that children, high school athletes and adults have more than 5,000,000 teeth knocked out each year. Many of these injuries can be prevented by wearing a mouth guard. We make clear mouth guards at Dr. Bruce Stewart’s office for $95. If an athlete wants to show school spirit by wearing a mouth guard made in the school colors, we can do that for an additional charge.

Dr. Stewart and our team strongly encourage everyone to wear mouth guards when engaging in sports. Please call our office to set up an appointment for the athletes in your family!
