7 Days in Dubai - - WELLBEING -

Meet the new gen­er­a­tion of film­mak­ers at ‘Meet the New Gen­er­a­tion’, a fes­ti­val hosted by the in­de­pen­dent movie plat­form Cin­ema Akil and Per­sol eye­wear. The fes­ti­val of­fers a full pro­gramme of free-to-at­tend film screen­ings at A4 Space in Alserkal Av­enue ev­ery night. Tonight’s movie is Fidai, a film which cov­ers re­cent his­tory in Al­ge­ria, while Be­douin movie Theeb will close the event on Wed­nes­day. See cin­e­maakil.com and per­sol.com/uae for the full pro­gramme and fur­ther de­tails.

Aside from a poor night’s sleep and an aching jaw in the morn­ing, brux­ism can also cause a range of un­com­fort­able symp­toms, in­clud­ing headaches and earache, stiff shoul­ders (from all that jaw clench­ing), joint stiff­ness, fa­cial pain and, even more wor­ry­ingly, con­sid­er­able dam­age to your teeth. It can wear down enamel and, in bad cases, the tooth it­self, which can re­sult in short­ened teeth, re­ced­ing gums and sen­si­tiv­ity. If un­treated, teeth and fill­ings can be­come loose and fall out.

To pro­tect your teeth from dam­age, den­tists of­ten pre­scribe plas­tic night guards to be worn over teeth while asleep, but it’s also wise to tackle the cause be­hind the grind­ing. For ex­am­ple, med­i­ta­tion, yoga and cog­ni­tive be­havioural ther­apy can all help you to man­age and relieve stress. Al­ways speak to your den­tist if you have any con­cerns, or if you think you might be grind­ing your teeth.
