In its list of 10 symptoms of overstress, Prevention Magazine (4/22) reports that a sore mouth or jaw, and bleeding gums may be two such symptoms. A sore jaw can be a sign of teeth grinding. A custom made night guard can protect teeth and prevent headaches. In addition, high stress is related to increased cortisol which can impair the immune system and exacerbate periodontal disease.
