Posted on 4/25/2022 by Evan
Ways to take care of your mouth when sick during flu seasonCold weather is known for drying out your skin but dropping temperatures can also increase your risk for dental problems. You might find the joints and muscles in your jaw feeling more sensitive as winter starts to roll in. these problems exist year-round. However, dentists ask their parents to be mindful of dental maintenance around the cold months as some find their teeth feeling extra sensitive. One way to exercise caution is giving your enamel an extra boost of care, either by using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth or using a soft-bristled toothbrush that will be gentler on your enamel.

We recommend staying away from sugary chewing gums or candies during this time of the year, mainly because they can cause tooth decay. It's essential to keep your mouth moist as the temperature drops. When you are sick, eggnog always drinks water and not sugar-filled juice. This is because they lead to cavities.

There are always going to be challenges according to levels of dental hygiene. But these simple risks will help you keep your teeth clean and away from any problems as you work on regaining your health. When sick, most of us tend to focus more on getting rid of the flu instead of keeping our teeth safe.

Remedy for teeth protection during flu season

Our practitioners advise using sugar-free drops that have corn syrup or sugar, both of which are very bad for your health and your teeth in particular. Natural, sugar-free products are more than welcome but avoid anything sugar-based. Take a lot of fluids also to keep your body, more particularly the mouth, hydrated.
