Poor dental health can be detrimental to the overall health of a person. All possible steps have to be taken to ensure due care for the teeth and oral health as a whole. This includes exploring use of CBD for different uses in the care regimen.
Why Are You In Pain?
Toothaches are caused by a variety of reasons. Chief among them, cavities. These are damaged areas on and in the teeth. The start as small stains then graduate into fully blown holes. Bacteria, excessive snacking, sugar, and bad brushing technique cause these. If left unattended, a cavity can grow deeper into the tooth thus causing toothache, infections and in some cases tooth loss. If the situation is left even further, the puss that pools in the cavity could spread the infection throughout the rest of the body.
The process by which cavities develop starts very easily, with uncleaned starch and sugar. These form a clear sticky film on the teeth. Bacteria in the mouth will feast on these residues and get bolder. With time, it hardens into tartar. This is difficult to get rid of. The tartar will act as a shield for the bacteria.
The second stet involves aggressive attack on the outer enamel of the teeth. An acid is formed at this point to erode the minerals on the surface of the teeth. Soon enough the hard inner part called dentin is reached. At this point, one will experience sensitivity. Once the hard inner part is all worn and weak, there is no more defenses for the teeth.
The third step is where the bacteria and acid reaches the pulp. A softer inner part of the tooth. Herein, blood vessels and nerves are contained. From this point, infection can easily enter the blood stream. The vessels will swell and press on the nerves. The excruciating pain experienced at this point is not accurately describable.
In addition to the pain, one will have trouble eating and performing their regular activities. The pain also brings with it a fever, swelling, and headache. Antibacterial treatment is prescribed for a cavity. Sometimes, in addition to getting rid of the tooth is the damage is extensive.
Potency of CBD
Research into the uses of CBD in dentistry is pretty scanty but current results show tremendous promise. It is a known antibacterial as evident from studies. It is potent against even some bacteria that have exhibited resistance to traditional antibiotics. CBD is also an antiseptic. This is a useful property, as it will keep harmful microorganisms from breeding in the mouth.
The pain that comes with a cavity is one of the worst in human history. It will throb and cause all around devastation. For this reason, one will require a powerful analgesic to kick away that pain. CBD is exactly that. Its reaction with the endocannabinoid receptors that help modulate pain makes it a powerful tool against pain of whatever kind.
Of course, there are other reasons for toothaches like periodontal disease. This affects the gum muscle and bone. A hollow space is created in which an abscess forms. This causes swelling. CBD can be instrumental in bringing this down and blocking damage to the jaw. It has proven an effective course of periodontal therapy.
A visit to the dentist can be almost as painful as one from a cavity. One may suffer anxiety and even consider postponing. CBD is great in managing these nerves. If the fear of dentists is crippling enough to hinder the work required, it should be considered.
There are several reasons why one might require dental surgery. A wisdom teeth removal is simple and might not need a visit to the dentist but is extremely important. One might also need dental implants or a tooth extraction. The jaw might also require an operation if broken or even misaligned.
When the body goes through physical trauma, it is designed to make efforts towards relief. When the skin is breached, the body releases cytokines and fluid. These work to ensure clotting. The buildup is the reason why one will experience pain. Pain is really an attempt by the body to heal. Post operation, pain is experienced by 10-50% of patients despite being on painkillers as shown by a study in 2010. It was found that CBD is instrumental in keeping post-op pain at bay.
One should ensure to keep their teeth well brushed so that plaque does not form. It is prudent to use antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day. A visit to the dentist for professional cleaning every once in a while is advisable as one will stay abreast of their oral health. Incorporating CBD into the oral health care regimen should be done only upon consultation with the dentist.
The mouth has its own defense strategy against plaque. However, at times the problems prove too stubborn for the defense strategy. Saliva has bicarbonate, calcium, and phosphate. These are powerful weapons against plaque and consequently decay. Gum is great at ensuring one produces more saliva. Research has shown that chewing gum increases production of saliva tenfold. The result is a 40% less chance of decay.
The results are better if it is CBD gum. The submandibular glands have endocannabinoid receptors, which activates the antibacterial, antiseptic, and analgesic properties of CBD. About ten minutes of gum after a meal can greatly improve oral health. It will also keep the jaw muscles properly exercised.
CBD infused toothpaste is excellent for combating bad breath and gum disease. It combines all the qualities of good toothpaste plus the superpower of CBD. One can easily make their own at home with a few readily available ingredients. Baking soda, peppermint oil, organic coconut oil and CBD oil. The coconut oil combines well with CBD to provide a natural tooth-whitening tool.
The toothpaste will re-mineralize the enamel thus reversing the effect of plaque acid. It will also relieve sensitivity. Coconut oil will heal the gums. One should add a pinch of sweetener into the mixture so the taste is not too harsh. One should use a sealable container so the paste stays fresh. It is easy to find refillable tubes online.
If one is not looking to home-make their own toothpaste, they can add a little oil to their regular tooth-cleaning agent. The benefits of using baking soda on the teeth are well known. Adding a drop of CBD oil to this only works to make it more effective.
After a tooth extraction, one can dip the piece of cotton in CBD oil before biting o it to help with clotting and keep the area free of bacteria. It easy to get infections from that fresh wound, it is best to ensure sepsis is kept at bay.
In the event of a toothache, ne can apply a little oil on the affected area for quick relief. It will also bring down any possible swelling. Sometimes, the toothache will bring a bad headache and fever. A drop under the tongue will quickly relieve that headache.
Using capsules is easy as the directions for use are right on the packaging. If one seeks to adjust their dosage, they can adjust by a specific amount without having to guess. One will know the exact capacity.
Capsules are great for use as analgesics after surgery or to fight normal toothache. These are not as fast acting as other forms of consumption but they work nonetheless. One can empty the contents of the capsule or crush the pill and apply the powder on the affected area.
If one has prescribed painkillers from their dentist, they must consult before adding CBD pills to the combination. These are quite potent on their own, there is no telling the effects of combining with other analgesics.
Oral spray is a fast and effective way to deliver CBD as desired. This is best for people who cannot tolerate pills or the sublingually delivered CBD oil. Most sprays are made from pure CBD and will therefore act quickly. They also come in different flavors making them tolerable and enjoyable to consume. The spray is perfect for addressing swelling. The bottles are small and therefore portable and convenient.
A teabag from CBD infused tea would be great after an extraction. The tannic acid from tea will restrict blood flow therefore enabling clotting and CBD will provide well-needed relief from the soreness. The teabag is wedged into the empty space and left there for a while. One can also drink the tea after for a good night sleep.
There is research being conducted that is looking into the possibility of having CBD infused dental filings. This will reduce the amount of pain and soreness after a filling. It will also significantly reduce the recovery time. More studies are also being conducted on the benefits of CBD toothpaste over regular toothpaste. Results so far are favorable with more and more evidence surfacing on the potency of CBD for dental pain and use in oral hygiene.
