As the office is closed and ordered to see only emergencies during this time. It is most important to take care of your dental health during this time.
Here are some oral healthcare tips to follow:
Make sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day. It’s easy to loose the routine and track of time (and date :) these days.
It is recommended that you replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months. This is also important to replace after you have been sick or when the brushes are looking worn or bent.
Fluoride used topically on the teeth will help strengthen the enamel and makes the teeth more resistant to tooth decay.
Our teeth are attacked by acid after every snack/meal for 40 minutes. This puts your teeth at a high risk for dental decay and will cause sensitivity. Try snacking on those sweets with a meal or drink lots of water immediately after snacking.
This is a crucial time to reduce the bacterial and viral loads. Try to not only rinse but GARGLE with a hydrogen peroxide rinse (alternatively use salt water or a store bought mouth rinse). This could kill viruses such as COVID-19 which have been shown to live in a mouth and throat (oropharynx).
