How to Take Care of Your Teeth During COVID-19
Here are some oral healthcare tips to follow during this time:
1. Maintain an Excellent Oral Care Regime
Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day - as soon as you get up in the morning and right before you go to bed. When you do brush your teeth, brush them for at least two minutes, as this will allow adequate time to ensure every tooth surface is cleaned thoroughly.
2. Replace Your Toothbrush on Time
Many people forget to replace their toothbrushes, but you must do this every 2-3 months, or more regularly if it starts to look worn or splayed. Remember, if your toothbrush is old or worn out, it won’t clean your teeth effectively and you are putting yourself at higher risk of dental problems down the road, such as decay.
3. Flossing is a Must
Dental floss is a traditional and straightforward way to clean between your teeth. If you find it tricky to clean between your teeth, then talk to your dentist and they can give you some advice on how best to approach this.
4. Reduce Your Daily Intake of Sugar
When you frequently snack on sugary foods, it increases the acidity in your mouth. This acid attacks your tooth enamel and weakens it, eventually resulting in cavities. So be careful about your intake of sugar.
5. Stay Hydrated
Your body needs a lot of water so that it can produce enough saliva to maintain your oral health. Why is this important? Saliva is a protective fluid that helps your mouth maintain a more neutral pH.
