If you want to stay away from corona virus, you need to pay special attention to dental and oral hygiene.
London: If you want to stay away from corona virus, you need to pay special attention to dental and oral hygiene. Scientists say that cleaning the mouth reduces the risk of the virus reaching the lungs through the mouth. Although this may seem like an easy solution, one study found it to be effective. Evidence of this has been found in a report published in the Journal of Oral Medicine and Dental Research. That, if the mouth is kept clean in a proper and proper manner, it can be effective in inactivating the virus responsible for Covid 19.
Need for cleanliness
The corona virus can enter the lungs through saliva. People who suffer from bleeding gums need to be extra careful. The virus can travel directly to the lungs along with the bloodstream. Therefore, regular cleaning of teeth and mouth can reduce the risk of the virus entering the lungs.
If there is no mouthwash, salt water is also beneficial
Ian Chappell, a professor at the University of Birmingham in the UK and co-author of the report, said some people get lung disease due to Covid 19, while others do not. Careful cleaning of teeth as well as use of mouthwash can kill the virus. In the absence of a mouthwash, rinsing with lukewarm salt water can reduce gingivitis. Which can help inactivate the virus in saliva.
