Dentist warns harmful ‘mask mouth’ is impacting 50% of patients due to prolonged use of masks

BPR: As if the debate over face mask-wearing amid COVID-19 isn’t contentious enough in some quarters, a dental practice is warning that keeping your mouth covered all or most of the time could allegedly lead to harmful hygiene issues such as gum recession (i.e., periodontal disease) and bad breath.

A Manhattan dentist calls this potential side effect “mask mouth” as a play on “meth mouth” that colloquially refers to the decay of teeth and gums among drug addicts. more

  1. I’m sure the smug Karens would just say do you want to have bad breath or kill someone. Good thing no one wants to get close enough to them to smell their breath.

  2. I am taking that damn mask off when I’m in the Doc’s office on Thursday, because the last two times I’ve been in, my blood pressure was up. I don’t normally have high blood pressure. I knew that face mask 😷 was causing me problems.

    If they give me any crap, I’m going to tell them why and if they give me more crap, I’m going to tell them to talk to my attorney. It’s time to fight back. 🤬

  3. Miss Kitty, my experience is that the doctors offices are where they are most understanding of not wearing a mask. That’s assuming you get past the masknazis at the entrance. Once you get past them the nurses and doctors seem to understand. They don’t like it any more than we do.

  4. Miss Kitty – My doctor is the same as @joe6pak. They do not like having to go through all of the hoops (masks, mandatory hand cleaning, dealing with all of the triage so the hospitals can handle the serious cases). They are conforming because they have to in order to stay in business.

  6. Miss Kitty–I promise they will understand that you need to take it off and don’t hold your breath while they are taking it! I wish you luck with your B/P and hope it is down.

  7. I have heard this!! Bacteria is wreaking havoc on the mouth. Not to mention that I noticed zits rising up around the mouth and nose. I can’t stand nose zits! That shit hurts! 😡

  8. Well, if that’s true. If the ADA advocates mask wearing it will increase their income over the next few coming years. The Manhattan dentist may be in trouble for issuing the warning.

  9. These leftist Governors don’t care.
    They don’t care that their stupid shutdowns are killing businesses and the livelihoods of many, many people and their employees. They don’t care that their states’ economies are in the toilet.
    If they can keep it going just in case they can get more federal taxpayer money and keep their little fistfuls of power, they don’t care who they hurt. Or how badly.

  10. The good news: Darwinism will prevail and the mask-o-maniac prog cult freaks will die out sooner than the rest of us.
