The holiday stress affects the body more than one thinks and the pain can be debilitating. Our contemporary treatments can remedy the immediate pain in one visit,” stated Dr. Gelb.
“During the stressful holiday season we extend our hours of operation. We also notice a significant increase in emergency dentist appointments - same day emergency appointments for men, women, and children who are experiencing painful TMJ, migraines, lock-jaw, ear pain, or facial or neck pain. Stress can ruin your holiday and grossly affect your health. We are here to help ensure you are pain-free for the holidays”, Gelb explained.
Holiday stress has been studied by medical professionals for generations. According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common effects of stress include:
Muscle tension or pain (such as TMJ)
Change in sex drive
Sleep problems & disorders
