During the coronavirus pandemic, many people have put their dental hygiene on a back burner. The self-quarantine has increasingly led people to spend more and more of their time online, either shopping, paying bills or entertaining themselves. Going outside of the house is a risk that not many are willing to take. This is why many people are avoiding their visits to the dentist unless it is a medical emergency. This means that you need to start taking care of your teeth at home and not let any problem escalate to the point of needing emergency dental care. With regular checkups at a halt, you can even try teeth whitening at home.
