Relax. Your Teeth Will Thank You.

We’ve all been warned about the physical effects of stress. Doctors remind us to protect ourselves from the dangers of unmanaged stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep. At Weston Spencer DDS – Conservative Comprehensive Dentistry in Rancho Santa Fe, Dr. Weston Spencer acts as an advocate for his patients’ oral health and preventative dentistry.

Don’t try to relieve stress with overeating, over drinking, smoking, or uncontrolled spending. Stress that is not properly managed can impact the heart, nervous system, immune system, and digestive system. It can also affect—you guessed it—your teeth.

The obvious oral health dangers are teeth grinding, jaw clenching, smoking, and the eating too much sugar. But did you know that stress can also

  • intensify plaque generation,
  • trigger canker sores and
  • increase the risk of periodontal disease?

Another problem is that when people are under excessive stress, they often neglect  basic oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

It’s ironic, but for some La Jolla residents, dental visits cause major anxiety. What if the thought of visiting a dentist sends your blood pressure through the roof? Talk to us about sedation dentistry.

If you’re concerned about the effect stress can have on your teeth, make an appointment at Weston Spencer DDS – Conservative Comprehensive Dentistry in Rancho Santa Fe and La Jolla today. We offer a broad scope of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including crowns, implants, and Invisalign.

Relax. We can help you get the dental treatment you need.
