Are you grinding your teeth? Are you waking up tired?

Many of us are not aware that we grind or clench our teeth – it happens mostly at night and reduce the quality of sleep that everyone needs – side effects are apart from less sleep, stiff neck, headache and very often long-term wear and tear of your teeth.

If you or the person you live with grinds their teeth at night, you also know what problems it can cause. Headaches, pain in the teeth, anxious sleep and not least the sound of teeth grinding that can keep anyone awake. These are problems that can affect the whole family.

Good night sleep is the foundation for quality life

But there are methods and tools to address these problems and make your everyday life significantly better.

Ready-to-use dental guard for good nights sleep

1. Check your stress and anxiety levels

Stress and anxiety are some of the main factors that can trigger tooth grinding or bruxism. Stress is unfortunately an all too common part of our everyday lives and can be difficult to influence. But being aware of its existence and trying to find time for relaxation and winding down is probably one of the best methods to also affect your tooth grinding.

2. Cut down on caffeine and other stimulants

Getting a lot of caffeine increases tonus in your muscles and certainly gives a positive kick but can also prevent you from relaxing and resting especially at night. Drinks with a high sugar content can have the same effect and are as you know also harmful to the enamel of your teeth. Try to limit your intake of these substances and you will also be able to sleep better at night and reduce the tooth grinding.

3. Relaxing massages

The factors we discussed increase your muscle tone and tension in the neck and jaws are important background factors for the tooth grinding. The tensions can lead to more chronic problems with headaches, facial pains and TMJ problems (the joint for your lower jaw), so it is important that you treat them and come to terms with the causes. Regular massages and relaxation exercises reduce these tensions and lead to grinding subsiding.

4. Good sleep hygiene

Anything that prevents you from relaxing and getting a good sleep increases the chances of you grinding or clenching your teeth. Make sure your bedroom is dark. Feel free to remove the TV and your mobile from the bedroom because they are well-known gadgets that will prevent you from relaxing and asleep.

Create a good sleep hygiene with a dark, quiet and cool bedroom free of things that can steal your attention and prevent you from relaxing.

5. Get a Dental guard

Using a dental guard is a very effective way to stop teeth grinding. They are designed to create a distance between your upper and lower jaw so that your teeth do not come into contact with each other.

The dental guard causes the jaw muscles to relax and you will quickly notice that your sleep is improving and that you wake up more refreshed and relaxed. Beconfident Protect dental guard is very safe, easy to adjust and comfortable to use. Protect is also a dental guard that is sleek and easy to get used to – very important because if you do not use the dental guard it will not help you to get rid of your teeth grinding. Simple as that.

We wish you a good nights sleep so you can re-load and conserve energy for the day.

Why is an electrical sonic tooth brush the best for sensitive teeth?

There are many reasons why You should choose an electrical Sonic toothbrush versus manual toothbrushing or one with a round brushhead.

At BECONFIDENT, we would like to help you get a healthier, whiter smile and if you follow our advice below you will come some way along the way.

Electrical Sonic toothbrushing

There are many scientific studies that have proven that a good electric toothbrush is much more effective than a manual one. The whole purpose of mechanically brushing your teeth is to remove the bacterial plaque that continuously builds up on the dental surfaces. The bacterial plaque not only cause discoloration but are also causing both cavities and periodontal problems. Therefore, we recommend using a Beconfident Sonic toothbrush that is proven more efficient than a manual. The unique “sonic” oscillations provide a vortex effect that also rinses through and cleans the surfaces between the teeth. However, you should supplement brushing with flossing or interdental brushes. The Sonic brush also have a setting for teeth whitening and a whitening brush head that polishes the tooth surfaces and gives visible whitening effect when used together with our Multifunctional Whitening Toothpaste.

Beconfident® Sonic Whitening brush-head

A sonic toothbrush is the most mild brushing on your gum and teeth. If You use the regular brush-head, apply little pressure and follow the instructions the ingredients of the toothpaste will do the job. With Sonic brushing you will mix the toothpaste and the saliva more thorough than manual brushing and at the same time creating small bubbles within the mixed saliva and toothpaste. The bubbles will help to clean away plaque and stains gently where the bristles of the tooth brush cannot reach.

The sonic toothbrush moves the brushead vertically – cleaning the enamel and also massaging the gum. This is the recommended direction by all dentist organsiations. No Dentist recommend to move the toothbrush head horisontally ( sideways ) since this can damage the gum and create loss of tooth. Perodontis is a serious problem of those using electrical toothbrushes with a small rotating heads and high pressure on the gum and teeth.

How can you avoid discolorations on your teeth and keep the original whiteness of your teeth?

There are many reasons why we get discoloration on our teeth and most have to do with our lifestyle and habits. Smoking, drinks like coffee, tea, red wine and soft drinks are strongly discoloring but are quite easy to get rid of if you follow our advice. But we are also born with different shades of teeth which is entirely natural variation but more difficult to change.

At BECONFIDENT, we would like to help you get a healthier, whiter smile and if you follow our advice below you will come some way along the way.

1. Brush your teeth.

It may sound like a superfluous recommendation. But it actually helps to brush your teeth a few hours before you eat or drink something known to discolor your teeth such as red wine. Plaque on your teeth builds up during the day and will attract and bind the substances that stains your teeth. Therefore, if you clean your teeth before drinking your red wine – then the discoloration also decreases. If you brush an hour or so before you eat and drink the taste of the toothpaste will not affect the experience.
