We know that all Canadians are experiencing a difficult and trying time now to help curb the spread of COVID-19. However, while we are home, there are still some things we can do to stay healthy and resources that we can access to help get through the coming days.
Keep Up With Your Oral Health Routine
During this time, it is vital to ensure that you maintain your oral health. If your oral health routine was lacking before, now is an excellent time to work on it. Remember to brush at least twice every day, once in the morning and once before going to bed. Be sure to floss your teeth before going to bed as well. It is essential to brush and floss before bed to remove all of the leftover food particles that you have eaten throughout the day.
