Stress, gingivitis, periodontitis, and dental hygiene

Stress and sugar is the culprit of many chronic inflammatory conditions, including gingivitis and periodontitis. . High amounts of stress releases cortisol which causes cytokine chain reactions to occur and trigger inflammatory responses. . Gingivitis and periodontitis is a product of the inflammatory responses to calculus/tartar. . Stress, high blood sugar levels, and hormones, can all increase our inflammatory response therefore leading to more aggravated gum disease, leading to gingivitis and periodontitis.


Regular removal of plaque, tartar, calculus with regular dental hygiene services prevent gingivitis and periodontitis.
