Coronavirus and Oral Health By Brigitte White, DMD

Updated: Apr 9, 2020




As the number of cases continue to rise, concerns are growing over Coronavirus and the public has been instructed to follow health and safety guidelines to minimize risk and exposure. Hand washing for 20 seconds with soap and warm water or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer, coughing into your elbow or sleeve, getting adequate sleep, and avoiding large public spaces is recommended. Regarding your oral health, good hygiene measures include toothbrushing for 2 minutes, flossing, and rinsing at a frequency of three times a day. Additionally, be mindful of the fact that bacteria colonize on toothbrushes and counters. So clean surfaces frequently and stay up to date with information from your local and state officials.

1. The dentist should offer comprehensive dental procedures and an abundance of helpful information about teeth whitening, including a healthy diet and lifestyle. "While many dentists specialize in just one procedure, such as teeth whitening, you want a dentist who offers a full array of services," says Dr. Ali. "Your family dentist may be able to refer you to a cosmetic dentist who offers many options for improving your smile. He or she can also help patients to choose from a variety of teeth whitening products. <a href="https://www.highasme.com/" rel="do follow">Dentist in Macon, GA</a>

1. When choosing a family dentist, it is also important to consider his/her personality. Dental health is an important part of a person's overall personality. If your family dentist is strict and demands compliance, or if he/she expresses irritation or disapproval of certain procedures or items, this should alert you to the possibility that the dental office you choose may not be the best place for you and/or your family. It may also mean that you need to find a dentist who is more understanding and compassionate. <a href="https://www.highasme.com /" rel="do follow">Dentist in Macon</a>

Whitening of teeth is done with special whitening toothpastes, strips, trays, rinses, lights, or lasers. Your family dentist should be able to tell you what is available and which will work best for you. Most dental offices offer a simple and easy-to-use system to apply teeth whitening products to your teeth.
