Your Oral Health can make a difference
during COVID-19
“COVID-19 has shook the earth.” We are all familiar with this
sentence that has been recurring ever since March of 2020.
Infections, deaths, lockdowns, face masks and usage of Al Hosn
apps flashed through our lives in a matter of months. We take
necessary precautions like wearing face masks, PPE kits and
sanitizing when in contact with the public. Now since we have all
the safeguards we need, it’s gala time for all of us……or is it?
We, the citizens of this modern COVID-19 era have been so much
cautious from being affected from this dreadful virus that we tend to
forget other things that matter our well-being, one of them being our
Oral Health. Some take their Oral hygiene seriously whereas on the
other hand, some are yet to be introduced to a toothbrush. Now is all
of this a big deal?
Some of us may not realize this but maintaining our oral hygiene is
indeed a big deal. An ignored tooth decay or gum infection for a
prolonged period can lead to consequential problems like
Respiratory diseases and in some cases increased jeopardy of heart
attacks and strokes. Who would’ve thought that brushing twice and
flossing everyday will actually save our lives! All the diseases we
get as a result of lack of oral hygiene will weaken our immune
system which will make our body a living hotspot for the
coronavirus to attack. Now it’s gala time for the virus……or is it?

There are various ways we can maintain our oral health and prevent
risks from infections and diseases. Besides a routine visit to the
local Dentist, we can:
Brush our teeth
Limit the amount of sugar intake
Drink plenty of Water
Change our toothbrush once every 3 months
Take in a well-balanced diet
Use mouthrinse/mouthwash
Floss once daily
Your local dentist or dentists around the globe may not look like much
but they are truly heroes behind-the-scenes. In this process, they are
heavily exposed to the coronavirus as they treat patients and risk their
health just to make sure you’re doing ok. A big kudos to them!
Every year on 20
th
March, we observe World Oral Health Day and this
was raised as a campaign to raise global awareness with regards to
importance of oral hygiene and issues related to oral health so that
different homes and health associations can lead a healthy and a happy
life. A simple process like brushing our teeth could be added to a strict
routine and truly we can all have gala time in the end.
