Dental Health During the Cold and Flu Season

Cold and Flu Season

You were excited for the new year, you made your resolutions, but starting the year with a cold or flu was never the plan. The common cold can include coughing, runny nose, sneezing, and a sore throat, with symptoms that can last for up to two weeks. The flu can include all of the symptoms of a common cold with an aching fever too.

We understand that no one enjoys getting sick, that is why at Centre Dentaire LaSalle your health and comfort are our top priority. We always sanitize and sterilize each and every piece of dental equipment to ensure the health and safety of all of our patients.

If you do become sick this season, we recommend changing your toothbrush. Bacteria can live on your toothbrush for hours, even days. Even if you’re lucky enough to avoid getting sick this season, remember to keep your toothbrush healthy by rinsing it off with hot water after use and storing it upright, so it can dry.

If you have any questions or concerns about your dental health, please contact our office at (514) 364-3366 or click here to visit our website. Also, be sure to visit our Facebook page to keep up with information that may affect your dental health and wellness.
