Estresse ocasionado pela crise da Covid-19 pode aumentar casos de Bruxismo

O bruxismo é uma desordem que atinge cerca de 30% da população mundial, segundo dados da Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS). No Brasil o número é ainda maior: até 40% da população. O problema é caracterizado por uma movimentação excessiva e repetitiva dos músculos mastigatórios com apertamento e ranger de dentes enquanto a pessoa está acordada (bruxismo em vigília) ou dormindo (bruxismo do sono).

A cirurgiã dentista Renata Amorim explica que as causas do bruxismo em vigília ainda não são bem conhecidas, mas há uma ligação com a ansiedade e o estresse e, por isso, durante o período de pandemia da Covid-19, a tendência é que os casos em território nacional e no mundo aumentem. Já o bruxismo enquanto dorme pode estar relacionado aos distúrbios do sono e a privação do sono de qualidade, algo que pode levar também à ansiedade e estresse. “Existe também o bruxismo decorrente de doenças que o paciente possui como, por exemplo, Parkinson, distúrbios psiquiátricos e psicológicos, apnéia do sono, uso de álcool, drogas e de alguns medicamentos”, completa a dentista.

Essa condição de apertar e ranger os dentes pode causar dano à saúde bucal e gerar outros efeitos como dor de cabeça e dores musculares. Renata indica que, em diversos casos, o paciente pode nem saber que possui o problema. “Muitas pessoas que sofrem com o bruxismo que se manifesta durante o sono só percebem quando são avisadas por terceiros ou quando já estão em um nível avançado da doença – apresentando sinais como alteração na forma dos dentes e dores de cabeça”, destaca.

Portanto, a principal recomendação é ficar atento aos mínimos sinais. “Dores na face, no ouvido, na cabeça e dentes desgastados podem ser os primeiros sintomas”, orienta.

Bruxismo no isolamento social

Ao ser acometido por qualquer sintoma do bruxismo, a principal recomendação é procurar um especialista para controlar o problema. Porém, em época de isolamento social, isso deve ser feito apenas em casos mais graves. Enquanto isso, procurar o contato com seu dentista é o caminho.”Existe a tendência de que nesse momento as pessoas sejam mais acometidas pelo bruxismo devido ao estresse e ansiedade que estamos vivendo de ficar em isolamento. Caso sinta algum sintoma, não hesite em ligar para o dentista para que ele possa avaliar seu caso e indicar como proceder”.

Renata também indica que é importante manter hábitos saudáveis, como uma boa alimentação e exercícios físicos, além de investir em momentos de lazer em casa. “Para evitar o bruxismo, a melhor opção é prevenir a saúde física e mental. Lembre-se de continuar fazendo o que gosta em casa, tente relaxar e faça exercícios regulares”, aconselha.

  • One other important aspect is that if you are an elderly person, travel insurance regarding pensioners is something you ought to really take into consideration. The old you are, greater at risk you are for making something terrible happen to you while overseas. If you are not covered by quite a few comprehensive insurance coverage, you could have some serious problems. Thanks for sharing your guidelines on this blog site.

  • Sweet website , super layout, really clean and utilize genial .
