How to Take Care of Your Orthodontic Needs During COVID-19
April 7, 2020
Nobody could have predicted the impact that COVID-19 would have on the world, let alone our very own community. In order to help keep our patients and their families safe, our offices will be temporarily closed during the COVID-19 restrictions. We understand that many of our patients may be wondering how to best take care of their orthodontic needs during this time, and so we’ve created this blog post to help answer those questions you might be having right now.
How Will This Affect My Treatment Plan?
The American Association of Orthodontists answers this question really well. They say,
“We know part of successful orthodontic treatment is showing up for your appointments. If that’s not an option under these unusual circumstances, it’s okay. Don’t panic. Though your appointments are scheduled out to achieve maximum success, this hiccup shouldn’t have much of an impact on your overall treatment plan. Given the situation, your orthodontist will work hard to get your treatment plan back on track when they reopen.”
Once our office opens again, our team will work with you to make sure that any delayed treatment gets addressed as soon as possible. During this time, we advise you do the following three things to take care of your orthodontics
- Wear your aligners as prescribed.
- Clean your aligners as directed by your orthodontist.
- Brush and floss your teeth before wearing your aligners.
