Mask Wearing Can Lead to Dental Issues?

Fearmongering and conspiracy theories have been at an all-time high since the inception of the coronavirus. And I would be doing a disservice if I didn’t spotlight them on this blog.

According to Natural News, consistent mask wearing could cause some serious health issues, particularly in your mouth. Several dentists are arguing that wearing a mask regularly can lead to mouth inflammation and dryness. Face covering breeds bacteria in front of the mouth and nose, where pathogens develop due to the warm/moist environment. Those pathogens will then enter the mouth and body and create diseases.

One-Manhattan Dental Co-Founder Rob Ramondi advised the following:

“We’re seeing inflammation in people’s gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before.”

“About 50 percent of our patients are being impacted by this, [so] we decided to name it ‘mask mouth’ – after ‘meth mouth.”

Another Co-Founder of One Manhattan Dental, Marc Sclafani, continued with the following:

“People tend to breathe through their mouth instead of through their nose while wearing a mask.”

“The mouth breathing is causing the dry mouth, which leads to a decrease in saliva – and saliva is what fights the bacteria and cleanses your teeth.”


Keep it up, 2021. You’re doing great!

Until Next Time…
