Can Teeth Be Whitened by Electric Toothbrushes

White teeth are fashionable and pretty much required by today’s society. They look healthy and every celebrity on this planet has a shiny smile that would illuminate every room they walk in. Probably even if the lights are turned off. But most celebrities can afford 5 digit numbers of dollars for their whitening treatments just like ordinary Joes can pay few dollars for a cup of coffee. In case you are wondering what are some affordable methods and products for enjoying a brighter smile, you are at the right place.

There are many reasons and causes for tooth discoloration. Some of them can’t be avoided like aging and certain diseases, but most of them can be. Most of discoloration causes are not just turning our teeth yellow, but they are also unhealthy habits which should be avoided for achieving healthier lifestyle.

It is well known that tobacco, red wine and certain foods discolor our teeth. Those habbits can’t be avoided by most people, but there are ways to reduce their effects. Many people run to the bathroom right after they had their meal, but that can cause more damage than good. According to Mayo Clinic research, we should wait at least 30 minutes before brushing after we had our meal. Foods and drinks contain acid and they are proven to temporarily weaken our enamel, making it too sensitive for brushing. Enamel is the hardest tissue of a human body, but once it is broken and thin, our teeth become yellow and sensitive.

Safest and most cost-effective method for teeth whitening are electric toothbrushes. They are recommended by dentists from all over the world and they are proven to remove stains made by coffee, tobacco and other discoloration causes. There are numerous studies that have proven advantages of using electric toothbrushe over a manual one including their effectiveness of removing stains and plaque. Most expensive and powerful models like Sonicare and Oral B are proven to whiten teeth for up to 5 shades. Unlike products that contain peroxide and other harmful ingredients, electric toothbrushes can be used daily without any side effects and they don’t cause irritations and damages.

There thousands of teeth whitening products for home usage on the market. Truth is, most of them are dangerous for your enamel especially after a long term usage. There is no treatment in this world that would bleach your teeth fast and permanently because they always get back to their natural shade – most of the time after just a few months. That is why dentists don’t recommend bleaching treatments and everyone should look for harmful alternatives to make their smiles brighter.

If you still want to use other methods to whiten your teeth, you can always ask your dentist what is the most suitable for you. But most of them will advise you not to use peroxide based products because after all, our natural teeth should be treated with care because they won’t last for ever.

Insomnia Cures

Herbs

 If you prefer naturopathic medicine, you can herbs to treat insomnia. One such herb is lemon balm and it is known to reduce stress and anxiety in the brain. Kava is another good herb that you will find at most natural health stores and it is derived from the pepper family. Kava is sometimes recommended to relax so that you will sleep better at night. Passion flower is another great example of some insomnia cures and can be used in tea or lemon water at night before bed.

Limit The Number of Naps You Take During The Day

 Another thing you should do is not take frequent naps during the day because when this happens, you start to feel as if you can’t sleep at night. One or two naps would be fine for rejuvenating yourself but this should be the limit. To reduce your need for napping, set a regular sleep schedule at night, and you can also take a warm shower before bedtime.

Don’t Eat Heavy Meals Right Before Bedtime

 This is a main culprit for some who suffer from insomnia and if you find it difficult to sleep after dinnertime, it could be because of the heavy meals. If you’re going to eat a heavy meal, you should do so at least seven to ten hours before bedtime. If you’re eating at night, choose a light meal such as soup or salad or even some fruit as this is healthier for late night hours.

Calcium Rich Foods

 Calcium-rich foods such as leafy greens and milk are excellent to consume because these foods contain I-tryptophan, which is an essential amino acid that helps you fall asleep. Also take calcium supplements along with the calcium-rich foods to boost the effects of calcium on your ability to sleep.

Foods High in Melatonin

 Melatonin is an important hormone that makes for better sleep so foods high in melatonin such as bananas, rice, oats, corn and barley. Just be sure to eat these in moderation to avoid a spike in blood sugar or weight gain.

Create A Stress-free Zone At Home

 Don’t bring your work home with you but instead use the rest of your day as a time to get your mind off work-related responsibilities and the drama between you and the coworkers or boss. Stay away from having intense arguments with your spouse and children if you’re stressed and learn to forgive their

inadequacies. Apologize for the way you treated them if necessary and think about the blessings you have rather than what you don’t have.  Ignore all unnecessary phone calls and shut down the computer before bedtime. Practice sleeping without the noise of the TV or radio.

Conclusion

 Insomnia is frustrating to deal with but with these cures and help from a sleep disorder specialist, you can be free from this condition and rest for hours. If you work odd hours, talk with your boss about adjusting your schedule so that you’ll be able to sleep at a regular time. Sleep medications are good but you should read the side effects because some of them could cause dependency.
