Are you in Back to School Mode?
Whether you have children in your house or not, fall's routine can feel more demanding than summer's. Take a moment each day to relax and breathe. While the immediate effect may not be obvious, stress and oral health are related. Stress contributes to grinding and clenching teeth, canker sores, and even gum disease. We suggest starting your day off with breakfast and positive thinking. Plan your day ahead while you brush your teeth and floss. This will give you a few minutes to yourself as well help to ward off some of the effects of stress on your oral health.
If you are looking for something with minimal stress to do with family or friends, apple and pear picking season is back. Freshly picked fruits make a great, healthy snack and can often be stored for making pies, treats, and meals that will remind you of your adventure to the farm.
Have a safe and healthy month,
Dr. Steven Rosenblat and Team
