A Sore Mouth and Bleeding Gums May Be Symptoms Of Stress.

A sore mouth or jaw and bleeding gums may be two symptoms of stress.  A sore jaw can be a sign of teeth grinding, which usually occurs during sleep and can be worsened by stress.  Stressed-out people also have a higher risk of periodontal disease.  Protect your mouth by exercising and sleeping more, which will help lower stress. Also be sure to visit your dentist regularly and let them know if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
