Health Tip: Feeling Under the Weather?
Take care of your teeth anyway

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Even if you're sick with a cold or the flu, don't neglect your teeth, the American Dental Association reminds us.

The group offers these suggestions:

  • Don't ever share your toothbrush, especially if you've been sick.
  • It's usually not necessary to get a new toothbrush after you've been sick, unless you have a weak immune system or it's time to toss your brush anyway.
  • If you're using cough drops, opt for sugar free.
  • If you vomit, don't brush your teeth immediately afterward. Instead, swish with water or diluted mouthwash.
  • Drink plenty of water to avoid dry mouth, which could harm teeth.
