Have you asked your dentist about CBD oil for toothaches?
If you haven’t, why not? It is widely known that THC and CBD have anti-inflammatory and bone stimulating properties that can help with serious conditions such as arthritis, so why not use it for dental pain and inflammation?
So should you consider trying CBD oil the next time you have a toothache? Let’s look at some of the causes of toothache and how CBD can help combat it.
What causes dental pain?
There can be many reasons for a toothache, but most of the time, the cause of a toothache is an infection. The buildup of bacteria on the teeth and gums eventually spreads to the nerves and blood vessels located on the inside of the teeth. Infrequent brushing and lack of hygiene help bacteria thrive.
Whatever the cause of the pain, it is always recommended that you visit a medical professional if you have a long-lasting or severe toothache. In addition, a professional check-up and cleaning every 6 months to 1 year is always advisable as a preventive method for any dental disease.
Because there is still not enough research on the use of CBD in dentistry, the benefits have not been thoroughly investigated. Because CBD is difficult to dose, results are inconsistent. Some patients find relief from toothache with CBD oil, and others do not.
Beware of “Xerostomia”
Xerostomia is nothing more than what is often called dry mouth. In English it is colloquially known as Cottonmouth. Hemp users know what this is because it is a common symptom that occurs whether you are using it with THC or hemp with CBD. Typically, after using hemp, people can feel their mouths getting dry and thirsty.
It is important to remember that when recovering from any dental surgery, saliva is important. It contains antibacterial compounds that keep bacterial growth under control. Saliva also contains enzymes and proteins that are essential for healthy teeth and gums.
This is why it is important to be careful when using CBD oil to treat a toothache. Like THC, it also causes dry mouth. You just need to drink lots of water and stay hydrated. You can also chew gum if you feel your mouth is drying up to stimulate saliva production. Dry mouth due to CBD oil treatment disappears after some time. Dry mouth will occur less often when your body adjusts to the presence of CBD.
Removal of teeth
Simple and straightforward: DO NOT smoke hemp after a tooth extraction.
The dentist will warn you not to smoke after the extraction of your teeth, as smoking can cause the oral cavities to be dry. What is the problem with these oral cavities? After one of your permanent teeth is extracted, a blood clot forms where it was removed. This blood clot is important for healing because it protects the bone and nerve endings.
When you smoke, the suctioning motion causes pressure on the gums. This pressure is enough to damage the blood clot and a dry hole forms. If the blood clot is removed, dissolves, or does not form completely, the nerve endings and bone become prone to infection. This condition is accompanied by severe pain in the oral cavity and face and requires immediate attention by the dentist.
How long should you wait before smokinghemp after extraction of wisdom teeth?
People often ask: “When can I smoke hemp after tooth extraction?”
After your tooth has been extracted, you should stop smoking for a period of two days to one week. If you really need to smoke, try waiting 2 days, but a 7-day period would be optimal to ensure that the wound has healed completely.
If you really need your THC or CBD dose, it is best to use food while the wound is healing.
