At Kitchener Street Dental, we are committed to putting our patients first, prioritising your health and safety. The most important thing at the moment is that you keep yourself and your family safe from contribution to this pandemic.
Considering all dental practices must remain closed during this time, aside from emergency appointments, it is also vital to consider your oral health even more throughout this pandemic.
We have put together some tips and ideas on how you can protect yourself and your family from the spread or infection of COVID-19.
When you’re in a situation where you have to social distance, constantly be mindful of hazards, and spend ample time at home, it can be easy to forget about you and your family’s overall wellbeing. Some easy ways to help keep your mind and body on track are to:
- Maintain a routine which will help keep you productive and accountable.
- Get exercise outdoors which is essential for your health and keeping a positive mentality.
- Practice self-care as to not get lost in the laziness of the simple routine; make sure to continue showering often, brushing your teeth often, and pampering yourself (you have the time now!)
This is a great opportunity to learn something new, take online workout classes, help your kids with their homework, start creative endeavours. Another great way to overcome your boredom is to practice something that you’re passionate about! Putting lots of time in will pay off in the end.
Maintaining a healthful diet during times of stress
Healthy eating is very tricky to maintain during this time, but one of the most important tasks. Keeping a healthy diet will ensure that you can stay productive and feeling good. Also contributing to your oral health and overall health. Eat whole foods and lots of fresh vegetables which will keep your teeth healthy and strong as well as a strong immune system.
