The Importance of Keeping your Mouth Healthy During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Since Dental offices are closed for routine procedures during this COVID-19 outbreak it is imperative that you keep up a good home care routine of brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. It is also important to keep your toothbrush clean. If you are not already using an electric toothbrush this may be the time to change over. They have been proven to contribute to a higher level of oral hygiene which is crucial during this time when you are unable to see your dentist and hygienist for routine care. Rinsing with a non-alcohol based mouthwash twice a day can also help reduce plaque and inflammation. Mouthwashes high in alcohol can disrupt the oral microbiome which is a key component of the immune system. Please do everything you can to stay healthy!
