The best thing you can do during a lockdown is to get your oral health back on track by booking an appointment with your dentist, but some people have reservations about dental visits during covid.
It’s important to note that dental offices are some of the safest places right now, because of the protective protocols in place, which include dentists and staff wearing PPE.
Our dental offices are taking extra procautions, including advanced air filtration, fewer patients in the office, expanding hours, and conducting coronavirus (COVID-19) screenings ahead of appointments.
The average patient should plan to see the dentist every six months. Cases vary, however, and some people need to get a checkup more frequently. Dental issues left unaddressed can turn into more serious issues. Tooth cavities often grow over time, which can lead to more extensive procedures down the line, like a root canal, tooth extraction, or crowns.
