Dr. Eric Childs with Oak Grove Dentistry stopped by Local 5 Live with how to get back to caring for your teeth and gums.

Some dental issues that have been assessed recently include:

•              Increased amount of plaque and tartar as well as increases in gingivitis and periodontal issues.

•              Increased reporting of bruxism (clenching) and grinding, most likely from stress–sore muscles, sore teeth, sore TMJ, headaches

•              Higher numbers of cracked and broken teeth

•              If you put off restoring decayed teeth, it is likely that decay has continued to increase in size
