Missed Your Regular Dental Cleaning Because of Coronavirus? Here Are 3 Ways to Maintain Oral Health Between Dental Visits

It could take months for you to get back into your dentist for regular cleanings after coronavirus (COVID-19). Here are some tips to keep your mouth healthy in the meantime:

  • Keep Your Healthy Routines: Daily life is different now, and it's easy to get out of our healthy habits. It’s important to keep your twice-daily flossing and brushing routine.
  • Oral-Care Probiotics: They are an excellent option to keep the mouth clean and balanced. Like gut probiotics, oral-care probiotics are formulated to release the good, naturally occurring active bacteria in the mouth and crowd out the bad, which can cause decay, inflammation and gum disease.
  • Indulge in Foods Rich in Antioxidants and Zinc: Keep your immune system strong to fight invaders. Eating a wide variety of whole foods, especially fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, watermelon, papayas, blueberries, carrots and leafy greens, will provide a wide range of beneficial immune system boosters.
