Home Remedies for Teeth
To View The Only Night Guard Review on The Internet,
I am a
big believer in home remedies in general. Medicinal herbs and
spices, naturopathic analysis, diagnosis and prescription,
acupuncture are all viable tools.
There are home remedies for teeth grinding
or bruxism treatment options as well, which is the focus
of this short article.
The same holds true (somewhat) with bruxism. Teeth
grinding is officially called bruxism. That's the clinical
So, what are the home remedies for teeth
Here they are.
Eat hard-to-chew fruits and vegetables like
carrots, apples, potatoes (steamed), broccoli, cauliflower,
turnips, etc. One dentist friend of mine once told me that if you
eat a carrot a day, it will always keep your teeth strong. Why?
Because carrots require strong bites and grinding to properly
masticate them. Chewing fortifies the teeth and exercises the gums
and muscles of the jaw. This is important for dental health and for
helping eradicating bruxism.
Acupuncture and massage therapy.
Relaxation. Stress is a culprit in many health
ailments. By "indulging" in massaging, warm baths, time in saunas,
it will help relax your body and make sleep more restful. One of
the reasons for bruxism is stress. One dentist I know tells me to
use a warm washcloth and heat it up in the microwave and then wrap
it around your neck and jaw. This is sufficient to relax that area
of the body. Have you ever flown first class? You will see the
patrons in the first-class section getting warm and damp towels to
place on their faces. This is a great way to do it without flying
first class! You can do this at home.
Use a specific mouth guard for grinding teeth.
This easy to use option (you wear it at night during sleep) can
prevent the grinding of teeth while simultaneously protect your
teeth. They are inexpensive and readily available in the
marketplace. Over-the-counter mouth guards are available anywhere
from $25 to $95 or so. If you go to a dentist and get one custom
made, it will cost a lot more than that.
Practice relaxation techniques like autogenics.
You can read about autogenics in any of the Superlearning books,
i.e., Superlearning and Superlearning 2000. It's basically a simple
method of learning how to relax your body from head to toe. Russian
athletes during the cold war dominated the rest of the world
because they practiced extensively both with their mind using
imagination but a core part of that imagination regime was the
ability to relax the body at will. Autogenics will allow you to do
Drink warm caffeine-free herbal teas before bed
(I would leave out sweeteners like honey and sugar as it will deter
the relaxation of the body).
These simple home remedies can go a long way in
helping to at least mitigate your teeth grinding issue and even in
eradicating it. Remember, truth is simple and so don't
underestimate the capability of these simple options.
