6. Have a different container of toothpaste for every family member
Unfortunately, the vast majority of people forget about their dental care products when referring to coronavirus prep, according to Elizabeth Cranford Robinson, DMD, with Cranford Dental. Most family members or couples share a single tube of toothpaste, and normally that would be fine.
But during the coronavirus pandemic, Robinson strongly suggests that each household member have their own “paste, floss, and brush,” as viruses can be spread from using the same toothpaste on different brushes. She also recommends everyone to replace and disinfect their toothbrushes, floss, and the containers they keep them in during this time.
