Psychological factors such as stress, depression, anxiety, depression and loneliness play an important role in the occurrence of gum diseases. People who experience less stress have a reduced risk of developing gum disease. Studies show that cortisol hormone plays an important role in the relationship between stress and gum disease. High cortisol levels increase the loss of gums and jawbones. It is known that untreated gum diseases often result in bone or tooth loss. People who experience intense stress do not care about oral hygiene, and use of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs is more common. Exercise, balanced diet, adequate sleep and positive thinking are the things that need to be done to relieve stress.
