Scientific Advisor at the British Dental Association: The prolonged coronavirus symptoms are debilitating, and persistent symptoms can include shortness of breath, chest pain, brain fog, anxiety, and others.

Western doctors and scientists have discovered new side effects that appear in the long term for those infected with the Coronavirus, months after their recovery. In contrast, the doctors could not explain these coronavirus symptoms’ causes even though they do not pose a threat to human life.

Although most Covid-19 patients only suffer from symptoms for a few days, others suffer from health problems that will continue with them for several months to come, according to a British newspaper Daily Mirror report.

The newspaper said that doctors put long-term symptoms under the name “Long Covid”. Under this classification, they recently warned of discovering a new phenomenon, which is sudden tooth loss.

Dentists said that they noticed that the “Corona” virus irritates the gums through inflammation, which leads to loss of teeth. This case was observed in many people who were infected with the virus and recovered from it.

American doctors said a woman suddenly lost a tooth this month after testing positive for the new Coronavirus.

According to the information, Farah Khimili (43 years) lives in New York City, and she noticed that her teeth fluctuate before losing them while eating ice cream.

Meanwhile, a 12-year-old boy was also reported to lose a tooth after being diagnosed with the emerging coronavirus.

The boy’s mother, Diana Burnett, warned people of the virus’s seriousness and called them in a tweet on “Twitter” to take it seriously.

She said: “My son lost a front tooth, and his other teeth were loose… It was clear from damage to blood vessels 9 months after infection with Covid-19 virus.”

While it remains uncertain whether tooth loss is due to the emerging coronavirus, experts indicate that the Coronavirus’s inflammation can irritate the gums.

“Gum disease is susceptible to highly inflammatory reactions, and long-term carriers of Covid definitely fall into this category,” said Dr. Michael Shearer, a prosthodontist in California.

However, others indicate that tooth loss may result from limited access to dentists’ surgeries during the closure.

Professor Damien Walmsley, a scientific advisor at the British Dental Association, said: “The prolonged symptoms of the virus are debilitating, and persistent symptoms can include shortness of breath, chest pain, brain fog, anxiety, and other things.”

He continued: “We know that people who were previously healthy can have difficulty performing basic tasks, such as climbing stairs.”

He added, “It is also possible that they do not care about oral hygiene, which increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease .. Brushing the teeth is more important than ever, twice a day, using fluoride toothpaste, before bed and on another occasion.”
