How Does Long COVID-19 Affect Your Oral Health?

Did you know that people with Long COVID can experience serious oral health problems? If you or any of your loved ones has Long COVID, here are the key areas you should watch out for. 

Key takeaways:

• COVID-19 can weaken your immune system and increase your risk for getting oral infections and cavities.

• You may also have trouble healing due to a weakened immune system.

• Fatigue from COVID-19 infection can prevent you from sitting through dental procedures.

Remember to brush your teeth and consult your dentist as soon as you spot an oral problem.
