Common problems that dentist have faced because of the pandemic

Due to lockdown during the height of the pandemic, people only went to the dentist if it was absolutely necessary. Because of this, dentists are now facing more problems than before. What are these common dental issues? And how they can be fixed?

One of the most common issues has been teeth grinding. As a result of this high stress situation, people have been grinding their teeth more often, leading to break down of the enamel and creating fractures. In this case, a mouthguard can help protect your teeth. Another issue is an increase in cavities. This could be related to the fact people have been stress-snacking more. Increasing brushing and flossing and getting on track with regular hygiene visits can help fight cavities!
