Dentist Declan Cairns offers dental care tips during these strange Covid-19 times

Almost all dentists are only providing EMERGENCY TREATMENT during COVID – here are some top tips to keep yourself pain free.

Brushing, even when teeth are sensitive, or gums bleed, is still the best way to keep them clean. It goes against logic, but keep brushing EVERY DAY with fluoride toothpaste and the bleeding will stop.

Exams and cleans might not be back for MONTHS. Dentists need YOU to spend extra time looking after your mouth. This is to stop problems developing in the first place.

We’ve all eaten RUBBISH during lockdown. Try to eat sugary foods only at meal times. Swap in FRUIT instead of SNACKING between meals.
