In cases of Toothache/Chronic Toothache the causes can be recognized and completely resolved in the course of 1 - 5 "Health Coaching" sessions.
The term "stress-induced toothache" is used if the teeth hurt but no physical cause can be found, i.e. the teeth are not inflamed and there is no caries present. Similar to the psychosomatic diseases, the teeth hurt here without any physical cause.
However, the fact that stress has a negative impact on our immune system and can therefore cause inflammatory processes in the body has been demonstrated in recent studies. Once our immune system has been weakened in our mouth by stress, it is easier for inflammatory reactions to occur because the bacteria present in the mouth can multiply more readily. The consequence of this is, for example, mouth sores and inflamed gums, which in turn have a painful effect on our teeth and increase the susceptibility to caries.
Furthermore, stress-related tension in the muscles of the jaw or neck can cause toothache, although no pathological changes to the teeth are visible.
