The COVID-19 pandemic has meant delays in dental care for many families. Children whose dental problems might have been easily taken care of during their regular visits to the dentist have been postponed due to the pandemic, leading to dental issues, since teeth don’t get better on their own. The problems just get worse and need even more treatment. Many parents say the COVID-19 pandemic made it difficult for them to get dental care for their children. However, worry not as we have prepared a list that will help the parents in maintaining good oral hygiene of their children, during and post-pandemic.
It’s a well-known fact that a healthy mouth contributes towards good overall health. We believe that the role of oral bacteria in facilitating co-infection in COVID-19 is relevant but overlooked. Simple oral hygiene measures could help lower the risk of transmission of the novel coronavirus from the mouth to the lungs and help prevent severe instances of Covid-19, as shown in a study, ‘Could there be a link between oral hygiene and the severity of SARS-CoV-2 infections?’ The study was published in the British Dental Association Journal.
Tooth decay/cavities are the most common diseases in children. During this COVID-19 crisis, kids have been unable to access dental clinics that help to prevent tooth decay or even to have fillings. So you must encourage your child to continue practicing good oral hygiene during this time.
Parenting throughout the pandemic is mostly a difficult scenario for families. And therefore, steps need to be taken to minimize any kind of problems that may arise. These few tips will help you in ensuring that your kids maintain good oral hygiene during this pandemic. Also, don’t forget to consult your pediatric dentist in case of any queries. Stay home and stay safe.
