5 reasons why using cbd before a trip to the dentist could help 😁
if you are anything like me… you’re not the biggest fan of visiting the dentist… but here are 5️⃣ reasons why using cbd before a trip to the dentist could help 😁
1️⃣ dental anxiety
cbd can help ease your nerves before visiting the dentist be it for a check-up or for any treatment needed. 😄
toothache is caused by inflammation of the pulp inside the tooth.
a 2020 review revealed that cbd is immune-suppressive and anti-inflammatory so can be helpful for any toothache you are suffering with whilst waiting for a dental appointment, or post treatment. 🔥

3️⃣ gum disease
gum disease is an infection of the gums resulting from the build-up of plaque around the teeth fuelled by the bacteria living in the mouth.
cbd acts as a nutrient that feeds the oral microbiome. a study shows cbd was better at reducing plaque colonies than several types of toothpaste. 🦷
4️⃣ teeth grinding
teeth grinding has been divided into daytime and night-time.
daytime grinding is often the result of stress or anxiety, which cbd can help reduce.
night-time grinding is usually more of a mechanical problem, such as sleep apnea. cbd can help you sleep better so there could be less grinding. 💤
tmd is a clicking or popping sound in the joint either side of your jaw that can cause a lot of pain.
it becomes inflamed due to any number of things. a bad bite, trauma to the jaw, teeth grinding, sleep issues or poor orthodontics.
cbd can’t fix the cause of tmd but it can calm down the inflammation and help the pain. 🙌
