Paradontosis is a common cause of tooth decay that develops from permanent stress, anxiety and depression. A new study by specialists from the American Academy of Periodontology shows that the onset of paradox is determined by the psychological state of the people affected by this condition.
The researchers mention that the psychological factors that are directly related to the paradox are increased emotionality, depression, loneliness and chronic stress. The advice of the specialists is to avoid the stressful situations that stimulate the production of cortisone "stress hormone".
An increased level of hydrocortisone contributes to the vulnerability of the gums and jaw bones. They also draw attention to the fact that during a stressful period people no longer care so much about oral hygiene and consume more alcohol and nicotine.
