How to maintain proper dental hygiene in quarantine

With the advent of quarantine, dozens of clinics have been restricted. While others have been allowed to continue business only if they follow the health rules to protect the dentists and their patients from covid-19. 

We have noticed that there are people who want to know how to maintain a proper dental care routine, as they are unable or unwilling to visit their dental office until things improve. That is why in this article we will post a proper dental care routine that anyone can follow so that they can stay safe at home until a real dental emergency takes them to the dentist.

Brush your teeth three times a day.

This is the basic dental tip of a lifetime. However, many people have changed their habits since quarantine began. More and more people have stopped brushing their teeth three times a day. We recommend to you brush your teeth after every meal.

Brushing helps to remove food debris and bacteria formation in the mouth. If you leave your teeth unbrushed, food debris will create bacteria that will destroy tooth enamel. Leading to tooth decay and bad breath.

Floss at least once a day.

There are places where the traditional toothbrush cannot reach, these places can be cleaned with floss. Once someone has finished flossing, they should rinse their mouth and check for food debris.

Changing your toothbrush 

You should never forget that you should always change your toothbrush every three months. However, if you came to suffer from covid-19 or live with someone who suffered from it we suggest that you change it immediately, and keep it away from the one who was sick, this way you will avoid the spread of bacteria.

Try to reduce stress

Much of the damage to our teeth is due to poor stress coping strategies. These can be, for example, clenching teeth, biting on objects (such as pen caps, paper clips, etc.), and more.

If you have had difficulties with stress during this quarantine. You should try to look for alternative ways of coping with stress. Such as meditation, online counseling, online psychotherapy, etc.
