Brushing your teeth regularly plays a major role in the fight against Covid-19

Feb 09, 2021 13:19 IST

Brushing your teeth regularly and maintaining good oral hygiene plays a major role in the fight against Covid-19, according to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology.

The research suggests that patients with gum disease are nine times more likely to die from the virus.

These Covid-19 patients are also three times more likely to experience complications due to inflammation.

The study concludes that maintaining oral health must become an important part of the care of these patients.
