While it seems the Coronavirus has caught us all off guard there are certain steps at home you can take to make sure your hygiene stays up to standard while you are at home
It is best to stick to a regular daily schedule which involves brushing and flossing twice a day preferably before bed and in the morning and in certain cases after meals.
This can also be followed up with a mouthwash rinse for 15 to 30 seconds and swishing with water throughout the day.
It is advised not to go without brushing for an extended period time so that your overall plaque levels do not increase and cause gum inflammation
Limit candy and sweet intake at this time especially sticky candy as they tend to require more overall effort to remove from the teeth.
Coffee should also be used in moderation as they tend to stain the teeth over time.
If you are in any type of dental pain I encourage you to seek an emergency dentist and have your symptoms addressed. Don’t delay as the continued pain can add to the despair of the times and cause even more issues.
If you have a temporary crown that has fallen out I encourage you to line the inside of the temporary crown with toothpaste and place the temporary back on the tooth and seek an emergency dentist this will also work for final crowns.
If the temporary or final crown is in pieces I encourage you to seek an emergency dentist at once because this may lead to more issues down the road.
If you have a broken filling, broken tooth or are in any form of pain call an emergency dentist and seek care.
If you have fallen and broken a tooth and there is severe bleeding and pain seek an emergency dentist at once.
It advised not to visit the hospital emergency room because first responders are already overwhelmed with the effect of the Coronavirus.
While we grapple with this new normal and watch elected officials decide our next move in responding to the virus let us hunker down and prepare for the long haul
