“Did you know that living with bipolar disorder can affect the health and appearance of your teeth?”
“Clenching and grinding (bruxism) of the teeth may happen subconsciously, causing advanced wear of your teeth or even headaches. When the jaws are in a resting position, the teeth should not be in contact with those in the opposite arch, even though the mouth is closed. Having a bite splint made can prevent the jaws from clenching together and damaging teeth or restorations throughout your mouth,” (New Life Outlook).
Check out this awesome article that I wanted to share with you on this topic.
Next week, I will be sharing my own experiences with
bipolar disorder and my oral health!
So, STAY TUNED! Reading is learning and we know that’s fundamental. 😉
