Oral Issues and Oral Remedies


In addition to ushering in cold and flu season, winter brings on a slew of dental and oral hygiene issues that are often related to seasonal sicknesses themselves. For instance, the following conditions, listed along with their remedies, are notorious for the season:


  • Dry mouth, which can be avoided or treated by drinking lots of water daily
  • Acid buildup due to throwing up, which can be prevented by rinsing with water
  • Tooth sensitivity, which requires a dental examination to determine the severity of the problem
  • Cavities caused by cough medicine and other sugar-laden medicines, which can be remedied by brushing or rinsing immediately after ingestion
