Sleeping Well Is Beneficial To Teeth

5th / June / 2017

We all know and accept that sleeping well is important to our overall well-being but it would seem it is also crucial for our dental health.

According to a recent article from Dr. Samir Alaswad, a good night’s sleep is an important factor in maintaining healthy teeth and a reason to smile.

While some people can seemingly get by on just a few hours sleep a night, eight hours is the recommended amount for most adults. Repeated failure to meet this accepted amount of sleep can have detrimental effects on not only our bodies but also our teeth and gums as the body doesn’t have sufficient time to repair and restore itself.

Lack of proper sleep can result in inflamed and tender gums and, in turn, loosened teeth so it is important to maintain a regular bedtime routine to ensure a good night’s rest.

Try and go to bed at around the same time every night.

Turn off phones, televisions, tablets etc before sleeping to avoid any distractions.

  • Try and go to bed at around the same time every night.
  • Turn off phones, televisions, tablets etc before sleeping to avoid any distractions.
  • Do NOT eat any later than two hours before bedtime to allow time for proper digestion.

As stated in Dr. Alaswad’s article “sleep is crucial to our bodies” and that includes our teeth and gums. If you want to avoid unnecessary physical and dental problems and a visit to the dentist then a good night’s sleep is a good starting point and you can find out more in the article at http://yourdentalhealthresource.com/your-lack-of-sleep-may-be-impacting-your-dental-health/.
