Relax. Your Teeth Will Thank You.

Most people have been warned about the physical effects of stress. Our doctors remind us to protect ourselves from the dangers of unmanaged stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep.

We know that we shouldn’t try to relieve stress with overeating, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, or uncontrolled spending. (Even though many of us are guilty!)

Stress that is not adequately managed can influence the heart, nervous, immune, and digestive systems. It can also affect—you guessed it—your teeth. At Smiles for Life for Life Dental Care, our team can ensure stress doesn’t impact your smile

The obvious oral health perils are teeth grinding, jaw clenching, smoking, and the overconsumption of sugary foods. But did you know that stress can also exacerbate plaque creation, trigger canker sores and increase the risk of gum disease? Another problem is that when people are under excessive stress, they often neglect basic oral hygiene.

If you’re concerned about stress’s consequences on your teeth, book an appointment at Smiles for Life Dental Care today. We offer a broad scope of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, sedation dentistry, and teeth whitening.

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

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

Just had my first visit with Dr. Whiting at Smiles for Life in Bridgewater. My welcome to the office was warm and inviting. The dental assistant was professional, proficient, and very gentle. Dr.Whiting is very good at explaining problems he saw with my teeth and outline options for addressing those problems.

I had the best experience here. Every one was so nice to me and I felt very comfortable throughout my appointment. The doctor and all the staff were very friendly. They even gave me a free scan which was so nice of them. If you’re looking for a new dentist I 100% recommend Smiles for Life.
