Impact of Covid-19 On Oral Health


Posted on 2/21/2022 by Evan Admin
Impact of Covid-19 On Oral HealthThere is hiding from the fact that the covid-19 pandemic has affected many people. The virus affects your body in many ways, and it can lead to poor oral health. It may come as a surprise to many people, but the effects of covid-19 are far-reaching. Thankfully you can get effective education on how to protect your dental health as we wait for the pandemic to finish.

Covid-19 Causes Stress Which Can Be Harmful To Your Dental Health


Covid-19 has increased the stress levels of a large portion of the population. From worries about job security to longer stays at home, the disruption to daily life can cause mental torture to many people. Stress can cause many people to clench or grind their teeth, which can lead to oral health problems such as chipped teeth. You can also start to develop temporomandibular disorders which can affect your jaws and gums. If you notice that you grind your teeth especially when sleeping, we recommend that you get a mouthguard to wear at night as you sleep.

Wearing A Mask Most of The Time


The pandemic has also led to the necessity of people wearing their masks to avoid getting the virus. This brings with a new set of oral issues. You can get infections due to the lack of ventilation. This can lead to bad breath and the accumulation of bad bacteria in the mouth. This can represent a worrying outcome if left unchecked.

If you notice that the pandemic is causing you oral health challenges, it is vital that you come to the clinic for an examination. You will find dentists that have the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure that you enjoy optimal oral health even as we find ways of fighting the pandemic.
