While face masks have helped prevent the spread of COVID-19, they have posed a new problem to patients AND dentists – a term coined: “mask mouth”. While our face masks are to form a barrier to stop droplets traveling in the air to another person, wearing a mask for a long period of time can cause some unwanted side effects that dentists are seeing more and more. Not wearing your mask isn’t the answer, so we’ve complied a list of helpful tips to reduce the effects of mask mouth and help prevent it altogether.
