"Mask mouth," a play on meth mouth, is spreading like wildfire and dentists are warning that it could have serious consequences, including death.
"Gum disease, or periodontal disease, will eventually lead to strokes and an increased risk of heart attacks," warns Marc Sclafani, a dentist and co-founder of One Manhattan Dental.
Wearing a mask on a regular basis is causing many to experience severe mouth inflammation, the complications of which can be extremely severe.
"We're seeing inflammation in people's gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before," adds Rob Ramondi, another dentist and One Manhattan Dental co-founder.
According to Ramondi, roughly half of his patients are suffering from health problems due to wearing a mask.
"About 50 percent of our patients are being impacted by this, [so] we decided to name it 'mask mouth' – after 'meth mouth.'"
Wearing a face covering breeds bacteria in front of the mouth and nose, where pathogens flourish in a warm, moist environment. These pathogens then enter the mouth and body, creating disease.
Another problem is mouth dryness, as people who wear a mask tend to breathe through the mouth while it is on rather than through the nose.
"People tend to breathe through their mouth instead of through their nose while wearing a mask," Sclafani says.
"The mouth breathing is causing the dry mouth, which leads to a decrease in saliva – and saliva is what fights the bacteria and cleanses your teeth."
It is almost as if the human body was not designed to wear a mask. When someone does is when the problems begin.
It is simply not healthy, no matter what the government or large corporations say, to block one's breathing passages with fabric or plastic, especially the kind that is made in China.
There is no scientific evidence to show that wearing a mask does anything beneficial. In fact, the latest research shows that wearing a mask does pretty much nothing.
Why, then, are many politicians, big corporations, and media talking-heads still pushing them? The answer is anyone's guess.
Those who are forced to wear a mask at work can try to drink more water and cut down on caffeine to help protect themselves against mask mouth. Sclafani also recommends that mask wearers use a humidifier, refrain from smoking, use an alcohol-free mouthwash, and scrape their tongue to further decrease their risk of complications.
Until a critical mass of Americans says enough is enough and take off the mask, the problem will only continue. In the coming months and years, expect to see a pandemic of oral health problems, heart problems, and early death caused by mask mouth.
The establishment will blame it all on the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), of course, but do not be fooled: masks are the culprit.
"Patients are coming into us like, 'Wow, my breath smells, I need a cleaning.' [But] when you smell the bad breath, you either already have periodontal disease or you have a lot of bacteria that's sitting on your tongue because of dry mouth," Sclafani further explains.
Sclafani encourages his patients to breathe through the nose whenever possible, but this is difficult for many mask wearers due to lack of oxygen and excess recycled carbon dioxide waste inside the mask.
"Masks are unhealthy," one Fox News commenter wrote. "It increases the amount of carbon dioxide you breathe in. It is also a germ catcher that absorbs all the germs your hands touch."
