Benefits of CBD for teeth and gums

CBD to care for teeth and gums

From its ability to address inflammatory periodontal diseases to its potential influence on dental pain relief and dental tissue regeneration, CBD has attracted significant interest in the field of dentistry.

Today on the Cannactiva blog, researcher Masha Burelo tells us about the latest research and studies on CBD for oral health.

Benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) to care for teeth and gums

CBD toothpaste offers a number of potential benefits for tooth and gum health. Cannabidiol, or CBD, interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, promoting its functions and the homeostasis or natural balance of the body’s tissues, including the gums, as well as the inflammatory response of the immune system.

CBD in inflammatory periodontal diseases

Scientific studies have demonstrated the potential efficacy of CBD as a prophylaxis and treatment for inflammatory periodontal diseases caused by bacterial virulence factors (1). These findings support the potential use of CBD in oral care to address these conditions.

Importantly, the beneficial effects of CBD on oral health are not limited to the gums alone, but can also have an impact on the health of the teeth.

CB1 cannabinoid receptors have been identified in the dental pulp and nerve endings of teeth. This implies that CBD can exert analgesic effects to relieve pain and tooth sensitivity.

In addition, odontoblasts, cells present under dental enamel, also express CB1 cannabinoid receptors. Initial animal research suggests that CBD may accelerate the formation of reparative dentin, which plays a crucial role in protecting against dental caries (2).

The promising role of CBD in dentistry

CBD shows great potential in the field of dentistry. Current research is focused on better understanding the effect of CBD on microorganism-infected gums and teeth, as well as its role in the inflammatory response of the oral immune system and in the regeneration of teeth and gums.

In the treatment of oral diseases, professional advice is important.

It is essential to keep in mind that oral diseases, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, cavities, tooth sensitivity or toothache, require proper professional treatment. Therefore, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a dentist to receive proper treatment and advice regarding these conditions.

We hope you have been convinced of the many potential benefits of CBD toothpaste for oral health.
