Stresses across the board are higher now because of the Coronavirus. Both physical and psychological stress weakens the body. This can magnify tooth infections. I have already seen more emergencies in the past week, than I would normally see in several weeks. Bacteria do damage faster than what I saw 20 years ago anyway. If you have a tooth problem, don’t delay. Infections can lead to hospitalization and that is not the place you want to wind up, especially now.
