Nowadays, there are several things you can do to reduce your risk of coronavirus.
From wearing a mask, regularly washing your hands and also to makes social distancing.
But now, a dentist has claimed that extra toothbrushing could also help to protect you from Covid-19.
A dentistry professor at the University of Bristol named Professor Martin Addy says that toothbrushing should be to promote alongside hand washing because it contains the same detergents as those found in handwash gels recommended. And he also advises that people should brush their teeth every time they leave the house.
As cited News24xx.com from The Telegraph, he explained, “The antimicrobial action of toothpaste in the mouth persists for three to five hours and would reduce the load in saliva or infection by viruses entering the mouth. Ideally, tooth brushing frequency should be increased.”
This isn’t the first time that Professor Addy has promoted the idea of extra toothbrushing to reduce your risk of Covid-19.
