Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) And Guarding Against Dental Problems

In addition to following all official guidelines to protect ourselves and others from the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), it’s also essential to take steps to prevent the emergence of other healthcare problems.

During these stressful and challenging times, we need to do our best to eat a nutritious diet, get sufficient exercise, and maintain our overall well-being. This advice includes protecting the health of your smile. By practicing good oral hygiene, following a diet low in sugary sweets, and avoiding harmful oral habits, you can significantly reduce your risk of dental problems or emergencies that would require leaving your home for in-office care.

Maintaining a healthy smile depends upon keeping your teeth and gums clean with a daily routine of brushing and flossing. However, because the mouth and nose areas are vulnerable entry points for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and other infections, it’s essential to take extra precautions when performing your oral hygiene and personal care routines.

We offer the following helpful suggestions for maintaining your smile while protecting your overall health:
