    • There are four types of stress that occur: eustress, distress, under stress and over stress.
    • Eustress is a positive form of stress. This is a motivating type of stress to enable someone to complete a project or job.
    • Distress is a bad type of stress that affects people through fear, frustration and sometimes anger.
    • Under stress occurs when someone is not experiencing positive stress and it can lead to more problems and produce boredom and hopelessness.
    • Over stress is the outcome of stress and occurs when someone is being pushed too hard to meet deadlines.

    • When stress occurs, one notices behavioral changes in an individual.
    • Some people are affected by poor or negative habits that may impact their oral health such as tobacco or alcohol.
    • The risk factors of tobacco and alcohol can cause the development of periodontal disease; and on high consumption even leads to oral cancer.
    • Para functional habits like clenching set in. Many a time, people are unaware of this habit and present with symptoms such as pain in muscles of the jaw, heaviness and muscle fatigue, ringing in the ears, neck ache or headache.
    • On examination, abrasion cavities, wear facets and decreased height of teeth is observed.
    • People tend to consume more in-between-meal snacks. This, if combined with bad oral hygiene due to neglect increases the risk of decay.
