Financial Woes Could Take A Toll On Your Teeth

Being stuck in a bad financial situation could mean more trips to the dentist.

A new survey shows Canadians are more stressed out about money than work, family or health and many of us are taking out that stress on our pearly whites. Of those surveyed, 30-percent reported grinding their teeth while sleeping.

Almost half of those people found out they were grinding their teeth during a dentist appointment while only 14-percent of people caught themselves doing it.

Seven percent of respondents reporting jaw pain and two percent going to see a doctor with headaches before being diagnosed.
