Dentists diagnose the infection of cracked teeth. whats going on?

So what can we do?

You’d be surprised how many people don’t know how much they pluck and grind. Even patients who come to the office complaining of pain and sensitivity are often unbelievable when I point it out. “Oh, no. I will not grind my teeth, ”I ask again and again, despite the fact that I am often Looking They do it.

Awareness is important. Are your teeth currently touching? Even when reading this article? If so, that’s a sure sign that you’re doing some damage – your teeth should not actually touch throughout the day until you are actively eating and chewing. Instead, your jaw should be relaxed so that there is a slight gap between the teeth when the lips are closed. Be careful and try to prevent yourself from grinding while doing it.

If you have a night watchman or retainer, devices that keep teeth in proper alignment and prevent grinding, try to stimulate them during the day. These devices provide a physical barrier, absorbing and dissipating pressure. As I often tell my patients, you make a night guard explode rather than a tooth erupt. Your dentist can create a night watch to ensure the perfect fit.

Since many of us continue to work from home for many months, setting up a proper workstation is mandatory. Ideally, when sitting, your shoulders should be above your hips and your ears should be above your shoulders. Computer screens should be at eye level; If you do not have a chair or desk that you can adjust, slide your monitor or laptop into a box or shelf.

In our new home offices, it is not uncommon to roll out of bed, find a bed, and sit for nine hours a day. Try to mix it with as few positions as possible, and combine movement. No matter how small your house or apartment is, use every bathroom break or phone call as an opportunity to take extra action.

At the end of the day, I instruct my patients – sorry for the very technical, medical term here – “stir like a fish.” Lie on the floor with your back straight, arms outstretched above your head and gently move your arms, shoulders, hips and legs from side to side. The goal is to stretch the spine and relieve some of that tension and stress.

If you have a bathtub, consider soaking in Epsom salt for 20 minutes in the evening. Instead of thinking about work, scrolling through emails, or thinking about your kids’ school schedule, focus on breathing through your nose (easier said than done, I know).
