Dental Care and COVID19: What You Should Know

Getting dental care during the pandemic comes with a unique set of challenges. After all, as a patient, you can’t keep your mask on throughout the dental treatment. 

Each time you leave the house, you expose yourself to all kinds of germs and potential viruses, and the same applies when you visit a dental office. During dental procedures, you may be exposed to droplets and microorganisms. However, our dental specialists take special measures to help prevent the spread of the virus. 

At Couture Smiles Dental Group, we're following the new COVID-19 prevention guidelines, to ensure our patients stay healthy during the pandemic.

Safety measures at the dental office during the pandemic 

So, what will be different this time at the dental office? Our team takes the following measures to ensure everyone is safe:

If you or a loved one are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay at home for at least two weeks to prevent the spread of the virus. 

Who can benefit from dental care during the pandemic

If you have a dental emergency, such as a knocked-out tooth or infected tooth, you can get dental help right away. And now with the loosening of restrictions, patients who have cavities, issues with their gums, or other uncomfortable symptoms can also receive dental care. 

Cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, or implants may need to be rescheduled. However, since the guidelines change rapidly, it’s best to give our staff a call to find out whether we can serve you with cosmetic procedures.

Find out if your symptoms warrant a trip to the dentist

Experts are continuously learning new things about COVID-19, so dental specialists can’t predict whether the restrictions will loosen or become more restrictive in the near future. 

Feel free to give us a call and describe your symptoms. Our staff at Couture Smiles Dental Group will guide you on what to do next.
