2 Herbal Teas To Alleviate Inflammation When Getting Dental Bonding As A Teen

Dentist Blog

You will quickly find out that dental bonding is one of the quickest and cost-effective dental procedures to even out a crooked or discolored smile. As a teen, this can be the best solution until you are able to afford a more intensive cosmetic dentistry procedure like veneers. Your dentist will apply a resin to the surface of your tooth and use a high-intensity light to set it. This will fill in any chips and cracks that you may be struggling with. Dental bonding will last through a number of years of constant wear and tear. After the procedure is complete, you may experience some inflammation. The inflammation that you experience after dental bonding will heal quickly. Fortunately, there are a few herbal teas you can use to help speed up this process.

Calendula Tea

If you have ever walked past a bright orange plant, then chances are that you have seen a calendula. The herb is not only sought after because of its vibrant colors but because of its anti-inflammatory properties. These properties make it a staple in pain relief remedies. You can create your own oral anti-inflammatory herbal tea by taking fresh calendula and steeping it in hot water. Make sure that you do this in advance of your dental bonding procedure. You want to give the herb enough time to properly steep overnight.

Cat's Claw Tea

Cat's claw is not only an anti-inflammatory herb but it is also an analgesic. This allows it to aid in pain relief throughout the entire body. It is one of the best herbs to consume after a procedure because of its healing properties. You can make your own cat's claw tea by steeping the herb in hot water. Wait until the water is no longer clear before straining and drinking the tea. If the tea is too cold, then you can warm it up on the stove or reheat in the microwave. In addition, you may want to add lemon juice and honey to the tea in order to reduce the intensity of the cat's claw. Drink this herbal tea immediately after your dental bonding in order to realize the most benefits.

As a teen, undergoing dental bonding will exciting and may give you the confidence to smile more often. Use these tips as a guide to ensure that you are able to enjoy your new smile with as little inflammation as possible.
