Dentist warns of teeth grinding and headaches during exam season

Thales Ambrizi talks about involuntary reactions that can affect quality of life and academic performance.

As high school and college entrance exams approach, many teens face intense stress that can lead to oral health problems, such as teeth grinding, clenching, and headaches.

Dental surgeon Talis Ambrizi warns parents of the signs of this problem, which can cause serious damage to the teeth and general health of young people.

“During periods of high stress, such as preparing for important exams, it is common for teenagers to start grinding their teeth, a condition known as bruxism, or to develop nighttime teeth grinding. These involuntary habits can lead to headaches and jaw pain. Tooth wear affects the quality of life and academic performance of young people,” explains the specialist.

Parents should note if their children show signs of pain in the jaw area, worn teeth, clicking sounds when opening the mouth or frequent complaints of headaches. When these symptoms are observed, it is necessary to consult a specialist dentist to obtain an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

“There are several ways to treat teeth grinding and clenching, depending on the severity of the condition. Options include orthodontic appliances, such as “trainers” that help relieve tension in the jaw, muscle relaxant plates, and even the application of botulinum toxin (Botox) to relax the facial muscles.”

Early treatment can prevent more serious complications and ensure that teens get through this difficult period in a healthy way. “Oral health is essential for the overall health of young people, especially during times of high stress,” Ambrizi concludes.
