Taking Care Of Your Dental Health Between Office Visits
While we are practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, we also need to be concerned about our dental health. The coronavirus doesn’t cancel tooth decay or gum disease. Protect your smile, an important part of your overall health!
Decay: Caused by the germs in your mouth that turn the sugar you eat into acid. The acid then creates holes in your teeth.
Prevent/ Stop Decay:
Eat less sugar and less frequently
Brush and floss regularly to clean the plaque off your teeth
Use the fluoride gel to make your teeth more resistant to the acid that forms in your mouth
Prevent / Stop Gum Disease:
Gum disease happens when your immune system battles with the germs in your mouth and all the chemicals that are produced in the battle actually damage your gums.
Protect Your Smile: keep up with your at home care to reduce the germs in your mouth and reduce the acidity of the plaque!
How to do it:
Clean off the plaque with brush, floss and irrigator
Therasol to kill the gum disease causing germs
Oxyfresh tooth paste to break up the inflammatory chemicals that cause gum disease
Take home care fluoride gel to make your enamel harder and more resident to acid
Amazon, who will happily deliver it to your door, sells all these dental products except for the Take-home-care Fluoride Gel
The Take-home-care Fluoride Gel requires a prescription and you can get it at your drug store or at the office. (they will probably charge you a higher price and add tax but it is well worth it if you cannot get to the office now)
Take care and follow this routine at home every day!
