It’s the most amazing season of the year, Spring! How excited are you about it?
Can you sense the chirping birds, flowers blooming, and the warmth in the air? These are just a few things that we look forward to when we hear of spring. We have to admit though, but there is one thing in this season that’s not particularly appealing, and that is the allergies.
Watch out for these Dental Side Effects duringspring
Most of us have experienced it, the red, itchy and watery eyes and even the constant sneezing and congestion. They are all the effects of seasonal allergies and can possibly have one or many effects on your oral health!
Here are some symptoms related to your oral health –
If there are allergens in the air which could possibly cause harm, it often leads to congested sinuses. Here, sinus pressure in the maxillary sinuses will cause the upper molars to ache. Hence, treating your allergies and the congestion might eliminate the tooth pain. In case the pain persists, make sure you visit the doctor.
This is a serious problem. Did you know all that mucus your body is generating could be bad news for your breath? Well, when you’re congested, mucus from sinuses leaks into the backside of your throat which we call as the “post-nasal drip.” This not only can lead to a sore throat, but also can be the cause of persistent bad breath.
Dry Mouth Problems
Many of you will reach for antihistamines to help keep the allergies away this spring. Though they are helpful, they could lead to a few unpleasant side effects, one among them is the dry mouth. Saliva is our wall of defense against cavity-causing bacteria, hence when your mouth is dry; you are in great risk of developing tooth decay.
However, you can beat this bad breath problem by maintaining a good oral hygiene like brushing regularly, flossing and using high quality oral care products. Not to forget, have your dental health monitored by an expert atleast once in every 6 months. Follow us for more blogs and articles on www.smilestation.in
