Oral lesions and Covid 19

Posted on 3/7/2022 by Dr McMurray
Oral lesions and Covid 19Covid 19 has come up with so many health complications. Studies have identified that oral lesions are common among those who have contacted the covid 19. The coronavirus affects the respiratory system and will cause the patient to have breathing problems. The patient is exposed to too many medications that cause the tongue and gums to have inflammation. The dentist will guide you on how to take care of dental health amidst covid 19.

Oral lesions

These are likely to cause mouth cancer and should be dealt with immediately. Mouth cancer is a potentially lethal ailment if not detected early enough. That is why you should get frequent dental exams and cleanings. The dentist will inspect your mouth, inquire about your medical history, and find out whether you are taking any medications. The dentist will then be able to do tests and treat you. If you require the services of a specialist, the dentist will recommend you to a specialist who can handle your situation at a higher level. Visit the dentist whenever you have a question about your oral health or notice any changes in your dental health. Talk to the dentist if you are taking Covid 19 medication that is causing the mouth to have lesions and sores.


Because dentists operate with instruments that are frequently reused, we must guarantee that our equipment is properly cleaned. This equipment comes into contact with a patient's mouth, which is a breeding ground for germs, prompting the need to eradicate any kind of micro life that may remain after dental surgery. This will prevent illnesses from being passed on to our patients from a prior patient who visited the facility. Covid 19 will require that there is no direct contact of equipment to the next to prevent having the coronavirus spreading all over.
