Oral Health and COVID-19: The Importance of Good Oral Hygiene During the Pandemic
Don’t get lazy about dental issues – visit our Liverpool Street dentist regularly
When you’re not going outdoors much, it can be easy to skip a shower or only brush your teeth once-a-day (instead of the recommended twice-a-day). You should remember that your long-term health can be impacted by cutting these corners though, as the NHS says gum disease may increase your risk of all kinds of other health complications, such as stroke, diabetes and heart disease.
Other bad habits can lead to dentist or hygienist visits too
During the pandemic, people are indulging more than normal – whether you’re baking delicious sugary treats or drinking alcohol daily, it can take a toll on your teeth, causing cavities. Smoking might be another way in which you’re self-medicating, but this also will cause your teeth to yellow and can lead to mouth cancers and gum disease. Make sure you’re taking care of your teeth during the pandemic by visiting our Moorgate hygienists.
If you have spare time, visit our periodontist in Moorgate and Liverpool Street

You’ll be ready to socialise at some point!
