Mask Mouth

Wearing a mask causes an increased carbon dioxide concentration in the mouth which produces a more acidic environment. This can lead to an imbalance in your oral microbiome and “mask mouth”. Signs include xerostomia (dry mouth), halitosis (bad breath), gum disease and tooth decay. Mask mouth can cause oral inflammation, which can reduce your ability to fight infection. Maintaining a healthy oral microbiome is key to keeping mask mouth at bay and taking a quality probiotic each day may help prevent these problems. Talk to our pharmacist to see what options are best to keep your microbiome balanced and your immune system strong.
