Relax your jaw to prevent gum disease

The holistic approach to preventing gum disease goes further than diet. Addressing wear and tear and tension in the jaw with relaxation and exercise also help.

Healthy gums are fed by nutrient-rich body fluids supplied through the circulatory and fluid systems. These systems can be restricted by tension in the body, particularly in the jaw.  So even if you are getting plenty of good nutrients in your diet they may not be reaching your gums if your jaw is tense.

Jaw tension, also called TMJ disorder,  also contribute to gum disease by causing clenching and grinding (bruxism). Many people don’t even know how much tension you carry in your jaw because it is so common, especially when we are asleep. At night, when we are not eating, talking or smiling, our jaws can settle into a very rigid state that puts wears away at our sockets, eroding the alveolar bone (the tooth socket sections of jaw and palate).

I have curated a jaw-relaxing playlist of free You Tube videos. Try one out today and see how different your jaw feels when the tension is released.

Has a dentist told you that your cavities or receding gums are your fault because you are drinking too much Coke, you don’t floss enough or you need to stop breastfeeding your baby? And you know that isn’t true!
