When you've been ill, this can take a toll on overall well-being, including our dental health. But it only takes a few small steps to keep your teeth and mouth healthy, even when you’re sick.
- - Stick to your usual dental hygiene routine by brushing and flossing daily. Plus, a fresh mouth will make you feel better.
- - Avoid brushing your teeth immediately after throwing up, as this can weaken the enamel. It’s better to rinse your mouth instead.
- - Keep sipping water throughout the day to encourage saliva production and prevent bacterial build up.
You may also want to get an electric toothbrush, especially if you’re struggling with fatigue. Your dentist can recommend the best toothbrush for you.
