Ever get the feeling that no matter how well you maintain your oral hygiene, one or the other thing pops up? Do you feel that there might be a bit more to your dental health than just brushing and flossing? Well, you're not alone. It may sound strange, but some relations do exist between your teeth, feelings, and the Throat Chakra. But if the word "chakras" leaves you clueless, don't worry about that. We are going to make it easy for you.


Starting with basic for understanding purpose - What does the Throat Chakra do?

Think of your body as a house with many rooms, and each room represents an aspect of your being with special attributes. One such room has been labeled 'Throat Chakra' and is located around the area of your throat. This room seemed like a place of communication and self-expression.

It focuses on the possibility to speak out your truth, share the feelings and thoughts, be connected with people.

How does the throat chakra tie up with the teeth?

When our Throat Chakra is out of balance, we don't only suffer from the inability to clearly articulate our speech; we could also suffer in our teeth and gums. For example, one is tense, feeling anxious, he or she may be grinding the teeth, and thus his or her jaws are clenched without one knowing. This may present with problems of cavities, gum disease, and in extreme cases, the jaw develops pain.


Symptoms of Imbalance in the Throat Chakra

  • Grinding or clenching teeth, especially during sleep or when stressed.

  • Pain in your jaw or stiffness: This could make it difficult to open or close your mouth.

  • Throat problems such as soreness, hoarseness, or frequent throat clearing.

  • Difficulty expressing yourself: Feeling like you can't speak up or share your thoughts.

  • Example: It may be difficult to express yourself when working with a team of colleagues who do not usually seek your opinion.



Solutions and Everyday Practices


  • Speak Your Truth: Practice expressing yourself honestly, even if it means just talking to yourself in the mirror.

  • Mindful Breathing: Breathe in and out deeply while focusing on the air as it flows in and out of your throat.

  • Stay Hydrated: Consume enough water; it helps in keeping the throat area fresh and the voice clear.

  • Essential Oils: Try using soothing essential oils like lavender or chamomile to relax your jaw muscles.

  • Gentle Neck Stretches: Gently move your head from side to side to release your neck and throat from tension.

  • Journaling: Write down all of these thoughts and feelings to help you process and release the block.

  • Creative Expression: Engage in some form of creativity in order to express yourself; this may be art, music, or writing.


Connecting with Spirit

Now, let's turn to spirituality. You don't have to be a believer to understand this part. Spirituality is connection with that deeper entity in you, something more than that physical part of yours that you see in the physical world. Your Throat Chakra allows your inner being or authentic self to come out when it is in balance. You may speak freely, create, or connect on a whole new level with other human beings.
