Dentists are getting back to work, doing typical cleanings, check-ups, and reminding you to floss - but they're also seeing a pattern.

Some dentists are seeing a number of patients about cracked teeth or tension-type headaches. It's typically the result of grinding your teeth because of stress. And it is a stressful climate in our world right now.

Dentists say the price ranges from a couple hundred dollars to over $1,000 just to fix one tooth, but the cost of preventing dental issues isn't so expensive.

"Good relaxation, meditation, breathing exercises as well as trying to get enough sleep nightly and I know that can be hard in this climate, but just know your dental professional is here to help," said Dr. Michelle Augello, owner of Nickel City Dentistry explained.
