Is There a Relationship Between Long COVID and Oral Health Issues?
COVID is unique in the fact that some individuals may experience lingering symptoms long after the acute phase has passed. This can occasionally manifest in the teeth and gums. In the same respect, COVID has been tentatively linked to issues such as:
- Prolonged healing times following a procedure.
- A proliferation in “bad” oral bacteria.
- Chronic pain leading to the inability to endure specific dental procedures.
It is therefore wise to speak with a dentist if you suspect that you might be suffering from Long COVID.
“Skipping the dentist because you are still experiencing symptoms isn’t a long-term option for your smile.”
