Remember not to wash it with tap water and immediately contact our clinic for an emergency appointment. Generally, if the tooth was put back within 20 minutes of the accident by the dentist, then there is a good chance that it can be successfully reattached. If a tooth was chipped, fractured or cracked, seek dental treatment as soon as possible. Delaying the treatment may mean that the tooth can’t be saved anymore, more so if the nerve was also damaged. Control pain with over-the-counter medication and use a cold compress to help control swelling. Seek prompt dental treatment.

During self-isolation, make sure you are well prepared to care for your oral health. The pandemic is disrupting every area of our lives are currently, including physical activity.

However, physical inactivity is a major risk factor for developing a serious disease

Toothbrush Hygiene
Keep safe by making sure nobody uses each other’s toothbrushes and that they are stored well away from everybody else’s toothbrush. The damp environment of a toothbrush is ideal for spreading viruses. Use separate toothpaste as well.

Continue with Your Normal Oral Care Routine
Sticking to every day routines is important while self-isolating and particularly your dental aintenance routine. Make sure you continue to brush at least twice a day and floss once-a-day. If you wish, use a mouthwash for 30 seconds as this can slightly reduce the risk of spreading viruses.

Watch Your Diet
It’s a time when it’s tempting to indulge in snacks and Netflix, but try to limit your consumption of sugary or acidic foods. Instead, concentrate on eating foods that will boost your immune systems like 
vitamin-rich and nutrient-dense fruits and veggies.

Stay Active
Make sure you have some form of physical activity every day. If you can’t get outside, there are plenty of fun exercise routines online.

Drink plenty of Water
It is easy to become dehydrated and especially if you are fighting an infection. Some medications can reduce saliva flow too, so be sure to drink plenty of plain water.
