The possible role of mental and psychosocial entities in oral diseases has become the subject of several studies. A study suggested that different bacterial levels were found under stress and relaxation conditions, which supports the concept that stress may contribute to dent caries and relaxation may have an anticaries effect. The relationship between increased work stress and poor oral health status was also reported. In many cases, no causative factor can be found to explain sudden episodes of tissue breakdown. Stressful life events are often presumed to be associated with disease progression, although it has been difficult to prove any causative relationship. Hence it is important to recognize patients who are in stress and to be able to advise patients about the possible effects of stress on general as well as oral health of the patient.
