Deep Relaxation from the Dentist 12020 Relies On

October 7, 2015

Woman relaxing on the porch thanks to the dentist 12020 relies onNo matter how much we may try to avoid it, life demands routine. Wake up, work, lunch, gym, errands, home, repeat. Does that sound familiar? Whether you’re typing away at a desk, speaking to groups of people or using your muscles at work, your body gets used to moving in a certain way, and that results in repetitive motions that don’t do your muscles any favors.

In fact, we often hold stress in the face, clenching the jaw muscles all day and night. That’s not a good pattern to get into, but it’s next to impossible to break the habit on your own. At the Ballston Spa, NY dental practice of Dr. Frederick Dreher, we emphasize the connection between your mouth and the rest of your body — and we know that when your jaw is tense, it affects the rest of your body in a big way. That’s why we take the Trager Approach to improve your overall wellbeing by focusing on your oral health first.
