Why 'mask mouth' could be a sweet spot for your treatment planning

By Dr. David Rice, DrBicuspid.com clinical editor

September 18, 2020 -- "Mask mouth" is a huge topic right now, creating buzz not only within the dental industry but also with our patients.

We know our lives have been changed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, inside and outside of the dental practice. That includes all of us wearing masks in public places -- and sometimes that isn't the best thing for our oral health, whether you're a dentist, dental team member, or dental patient. That's where the topic of "mask mouth" has entered into our vocabulary.
