    How to tell if you suffer from Bruxism/teeth grinding?

You wake up one morning and notice that your jaw just hurts or is sore. When you try to open your mouth wide the muscles ache and the teeth are painful as if you have been chewing gum all night. You make so much noise that someone who is monitoring your sleep can actually hear your teeth gnashing against each other. 

Yes, then you definitely have Bruxism.

The exact cause of bruxism is unknown but there are various factors associated with it, such as:
- Stress
- Anxiety
- Misalignment of the upper and lower teeth
- Side effect of certain medications
- Dreams

Bruxism may result in:

                                                                            It should be useful for you to know that teeth grinding can start at an early age as well as anytime during your adult age.

Once you have created a habit of teeth grinding and bruxism becomes a nightly occurrence for extended periods of time, serious health problems can start to show in the form of for example Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) where your whole body could be affected.Therefore, it is crucial to find out if you have bruxism as soon as possible so you can take the necessary steps to overcome it before things get worse.
The most common, effective and reversible treatment option is wearing a
night guard/splint.

Your dentist is the best person to help you treat bruxism symptoms. In some cases, he or she may also refer you to a sleep doctor who can diagnose any related sleep problems.

Orange peels for Tooth Whitening..

The white inside portion of an orange peel, called the albedo, contains a number of compounds including vitamin C, limonene, glucarate, pectin and soluble fiber. Limonene, also called d-Limonene, is a natural solvent cleaner that is extracted from the orange peel and used commercially in a wide variety of cleaning products. Unlike the fruit itself, orange peels do not contain citric acid, which can erode tooth enamel over time.

Using Orange Peels:

The process of tooth whitening with an orange peel is simple. Wash the orange to remove any dirt. Peel the orange and rub the albedo over your teeth. Rinse your mouth with water or brush your teeth. Repeat as desired with a fresh piece of orange peel. Discard the orange peel after use. Orange peels that are commercially grown may contain pesticides and herbicides; nutritional scientists recommend you choose organically grown oranges.

Using Powder Form :

Grind dry orange peels and bay leaves into a powder. Mix this powder with some water and make a toothpaste mixture with which you will brush onto your teeth. This can also help you stave off other dental problems such as gum disease and cavities.

We call it the MAGIC TOUCH..

If you want it, we'll make it happen  :)

Simply Keeping Teeth Healthy!

Keeping Teeth Healthy

   Using a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice a day, keeps plaque off the surfaces of  
   the teeth before it hardens into tartar or calculus.

   Flossing once a day complements this twice-a-day brushing, by lifting plaque off the 
   enamel between adjacent teeth. If not removed, acids released by the bacteria in plaque 
   will eventually erode tooth enamel and cause cavities to form in the teeth.

   Use of a mouthwash off and on is advisable.

   Scaling and polishing (Professional cleaning), once in 6 months is recommended.

Strawberries for whiter teeth?

According to a celebrity beauty experts:

Strawberries may help whiten teeth because they contain an enzyme called malic acid, which can be found in some whitening toothpastes.
You can mash up the strawberry or just rub it on your teeth, cut in half. Leave the juice on your teeth for one minute and then rinse with water.

Some cosmetic and implant dentistry experts, also believe that the fiber in strawberries also behaves as a natural cleaner by removing bacteria from the teeth and mouth.
